Where to Point Your Student
ECU has many resources available to help your student reach their potential both in and out of the classroom. The listing below is a sample of those resources, but there are many more.
Your student’s academic advisor serves as a first point of contact. Even for non-academic concerns, the advisor can point them in the right direction. The Undergraduate Advising Office can be reached at (252)328-5571 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Business Communication Center
The Business Communication Center (BCC) is a resource that will strengthen your student’s communication through workshops, class instruction, coaching, partnerships with faculty, and online tutorials. Richard O’Dor is the Director of the BCC and can be reached at email@example.com.
Center for Counseling and Student Development
The Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) provides individual counseling within a brief, short-term therapeutic model (up to 12 sessions within an academic year), with most students benefiting from 4-5 sessions. Short-term counseling can be beneficial to students experiencing challenges in the following areas: personal, relationships, development, and academic. The CCSD also provides crisis services and a staff member is on-call 24/7. Students can schedule an appointment by contacting the CCSD at (252)328-6661.
COB Career Center
The COB Career Center provides personalized coaching and support to undergraduate and graduate business students as they prepare for a career beyond ECU. They help students identify and explore career options that best suit their strengths and assist them in developing an effective strategy to attain specific career goals.
We are always looking for internship sites and employment opportunities for our students. If you have a position at your company, please let us know! Melissa Parks is our Internship Coordinator and can be reached at (252)737-1236 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disability Support Services
Disability Support Services (DSS) provides individuals with disabilities support that will enable them to access programs, services, facilities, and activities of the University. They are located in 138 Slay Hall and can be reached at email@example.com or (252)737-1016.
Faculty can be one of the best resources for your student. If they are struggling with a class, the faculty member teaching the class would be in the best position to help determine where the problem is occurring. Developing a positive relationship with faculty can help your student when they need a recommendation letter for scholarships, graduate school, or a job application. All faculty hold weekly office hours, which are listed on the class syllabus and on their office door. If a student has a conflict with the scheduled office hours, please encourage them to email the faculty member to schedule a time to meet.
Pirate Academic Success Center
The Pirate Academic Success Center (PASC) offers free tutoring, study groups, academic skills coaching, community tutoring, and learning communities for ECU enrolled students. Encourage your students to use PASC! Many students use PASC to keep their A average, some use it to improve their study skills, and others use it because they are struggling in a class. There are group and individual sessions. It is located on the second floor (2300 suite) of the Old Cafeteria Complex. Your student can call (252)737-3009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact PASC staff or to make an appointment.
