East Carolina University East Carolina University

For nearly a century, East Carolina University has served the people of North Carolina and the nation. From modest beginnings as a teacher training school, East Carolina has grown to become an emerging, national research university with an enrollment of nearly 28,000. East Carolina is focused on using new technology to improve the quality of life for the public. East Carolina received three top-ten rankings in a study conducted by the Chronicle of Higher Education measuring the practical application of research for the university’s success and efficiency in filing patents, licensing inventions, and creating spin-off companies. ECU was the only North Carolina university to receive a top-ten ranking in the study. ECU’s research has led to the formation of several spin-off biotechnology companies in eastern North Carolina. In addition, ECU has entered in to a partnership with Pitt Community College to assist in developing a biotechnology labor pool for the region. Researchers at East Carolina are making discoveries daily that keep in line with the university’s mission to serve the public with its tools for innovation. – East Carolina University
