Elizabeth City State University, the historically Black educational institution in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, has entered into an agreement with the North Carolina State University Industrial Extension Service. Under the agreement, the two institutions will partner to offer courses through the Elizabeth City State University Office of Distance and Continuing Education. Courses in this program will include OSHA training, quality management and improvement, efficiency improvement, and project management.
In a second area of cooperation, students, faculty, and staff at Elizabeth City State University will become involved in projects of the Industrial Extension Service in areas such as manufacturing process improvement, safety assessment, and quality management. This partnership will allow ECSU students to become involved in real-word experiences in the industrial sector.
