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 annually funded awards and scholarship endowments, The Women’s Roundtable provides need and merit-based aid to deserving ECU students. Since 2008, the Women’s Roundtable has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships, established an endowed Access Scholarship, and inspired numerous individuals to make impressive personal commitments to the university. The Women’s Roundtable aspires to raise an additional $300,000 by December 2017 to establish two new scholarship endowments; one for Honors College and one Access Scholars.
