Another transition ahead for Elizabeth City State University - JANE STANCILL, News and Observer

Elizabeth City State University’s future is unclear after the resignation of its leader only 14 months into the job. The sudden and unexplained resignation of Chancellor Stacey Franklin Jones on Monday was coupled with the news that East Carolina University will step in to give guidance to the struggling institution, which has been losing students and money for the past several years. That collaboration could portend a new way forward for Elizabeth City State, a historically black institution nestled in economically challenged northeastern North Carolina. So far, the partnership with ECU has not been clearly defined. A news release from the UNC system said ECU will help “build greater capacity throughout ECSU’s student support and operational units.”
