History Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) is a state-supported, coed, four-year college, founded in 1891 as the Elizabeth State Colored Normal School. Secondary-level instruction was offered until 1937. The name changed to Elizabeth City State Teachers College in 1939, awarding its first baccalaureate degrees. To more accurately reflect the growth in programs, the school’s name changed to Elizabeth City State College in 1963 and Elizabeth City State University in 1969. ECSU is one of sixteen bodies of higher education that make up the University of North Carolina System. Originally, the University’s mission was to serve minorities, while today the University serves to educate an increasingly multicultural student body. The school also endeavors to identify and address the needs of the northeastern region of the state, with particular attention to economic development. The campus has forty-one buildings and is located on approximately 856 acres, of which approximately 87 acres represent the campus proper, 68 acres comprise the former farm, 639 acres are reserved for educational research, and 35 acres comprise landholding designed for residential or expansion purposes. A golf driving range, a nature trail for outdoor classroom, and tennis courts are also located on the campus.
