What We Do:

The ECU News Service is an independent reporting service that covers events, issues and stories for the university community.

  • We work with colleges and departments to get university news published online and distributed to media outlets.

  • We work with news media to help reporters and news directors cover events, topics and issues involving ECU or incorporating expert opinion from within the ECU community.

  • We play a communications role on the university's emergency response team. Those duties include crafting and sending ECU alerts and providing public updates during weather or public safety emergencies.

  • We publish news about the university on the ECU News Services home page, the ECU Now blogEast, the monthly newsletter in the alumni magazine, as well as the ECU home page. We maintain a list of university experts on our ECU Experts List.
