East Carolina University History: Home




This guide consists of a collection of resources that focus on the evolution of East Carolina University from the East Carolina Teachers Training School to the current incarnation of the institution.  These resources have been broken down into four sections that correspond with the four phases of the development of ECU.  

We encourage you to also check out ECU Chronicles: Our History, which contains information on all periods of the school's history, our Digital Collections, and a digital timeline of The Pursuit of Civil Rights at East Carolina.  You can also explore the collection guides for our materals.
