Elizabeth City State University Gets a New Academic Partner

ecsuElizabeth City State University, a historically Black educational institution in North Carolina, has signed an agreement with Roanoke-Chowan Community College in Ahoskie, North Carolina. The agreement calls for a program in which students in the Ahoskie region will earn an associate’s degree in criminal justice or social work at Roanoke-Chowan Community College. They will then be able to stay on and work toward a bachelor’s degree from Elizabeth City State University while taking their course work at the Roanoke-Chowan Community College campus.

The big advantage to students is that many can live at home in the Ahoskie area and still work toward their bachelor’s degree from Elizabeth City State University, which is about an hour away.

Roanoke-Chowan Community College enrolls about 900 students. According to the latest U.S. Department of Education data, African Americans make up 57 percent of the student body.
