To foster student development through innovative programs and services as identified in the Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan 2011-2014 as a strategic priority. Thematic Programs are rooted in student development theory and enhance student learning to contribute to student success. Thematic Programs will enhance the East Carolina University community through creating social and educational environments for students to connect with one another through common experiences. This is accomplished through a holistic approach that addresses the needs of the student, specific to current challenges they are facing each year.
To continue supporting the great strides made in prior years to the intentional and educationally based programs offered the Innovative Program Council will be selecting a theme(s) each year that addresses specific student concerns of that year. These themes will correspond with the priorities outlined in the Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan 2011-2014.
The selected theme will also be a reflection of the values of the Division of Student Affairs
