The ECU Women's Roundtable aims to support East Carolina University by creating a culture of giving; building a strong volunteer base of women committed to advancing the university; forming a deeper pool of women capable of assuming leadership roles at ECU; building community among women graduates and providing a channel for alumnae to play an active role in the university.

Through leadership, service, networking, mentoring and philanthropy, the Roundtable recognizes the role women play in shaping the future of the region, the state and the nation.

Creating a Legacy of Women Leaders

Chair Gail Herring
Some of the best years of my life were spent on East Carolina’s campus! So, 30 years after graduation, when I had the opportunity to join The Women's Roundtable Board of Directors, and give back to the institution of higher education that shaped and defined me, I did. My service on The Women’s Roundtable Board of Directors continues to be one of my most gratifying experiences.

The Women’s Roundtable is one of the most dynamic groups of energetic, bold, determined, thoughtful, and inspiring individuals I have ever known. Our members are passionate about endowing scholarship funds that will attract the best and brightest students to East Carolina University and support deserving ECU scholars for years to come.



The Women's Roundtable believes in the power of women to impact other women's lives as well as our students, our university, and the broader community in dynamic and sustainable ways. If you share this belief, come join us. Affiliation is not limited to ECU alumnae.


Through the Access Scholarship program, the Women's Roundtable supports an historically underserved but greatly deserving group of ECU students who demonstrate both financial need and proven academic potential. Since 2008, the Women’s Roundtable has given over $90,000 in Access scholarships.
