ECU Advocacy

The Office of the Dean of Students serves an integral role in providing support to students who are involved in cases of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.  Our office is committed to providing guidance by sharing resources and giving referrals to students who are experiencing difficult situations that may be negatively impacting their academic and personal success. This support often includes referrals for on- and off-campus resources, sharing information regarding campus and criminal options, and advocating for student academic accommodations.

East Carolina University has established a Title IX Department with the primary focus of providing education centered around the issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking; thoroughly investigating reports of such behaviors; and ensuring that the university follows federal regulations.  For more information, visit the Office for Equity and Diversity Title IX website
