The College of Education strives to meet ECU's Diversity Goal

East Carolina University is committed to enriching the lives of students, faculty and staff by providing a diverse academic community where the exchange of ideas, knowledge and perspectives is an active part of living and learning. The university seeks to create an environment that fosters the recruitment and retention of a more diverse student body, faculty, staff and administration. The University defines diversity in a broad context to include the representation, integration, and interaction of different races, ethnicities, cultures, national origins, abilities, religions, orientations, intellectual positions, and perspectives. The University desires a pluralistic academic community where teaching, living, and learning, occurs in an atmosphere of mutual respect in pursuit of excellence. The University considers diversity, the opportunities afforded by a diverse learning environment, and the authentic interaction among people from various backgrounds and persuasions to be essential elements in achieving excellence in education.
East Carolina University is committed to equality of educational opportunity and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.

East Carolina University supports the protections available to members of its community under all applicable federal laws, including Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; Section 799A and 845 of the Public Health Service Act; the Equal Pay Act; the Age Discrimination Act of 1975; the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1974; the Vietnam Era Veteran's Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992; and Executive Order 11246 as amended by Executive Order 11375.

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992, accommodations of the disabled extend to student programs, employment practices, elimination of physical barriers, and special assistance to disabled students and employees within the university.[1]

The Office for Equity and Diversity provides leadership to the university's efforts to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment. The Office promotes equity in educational opportunity, programming, and employment and promotes an environment of diversity, respect, and inclusion for all members of the university community.
