Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) seeks to enable student and employee civic engagement to transcend the encapsulated campus-life environment. This will be reflected throughout the university’s core values, policies, procedures, practices, and overall interaction between individuals in a collective manner. The guiding principles to enacting the civic action plan are:

  • Cultural Humility (looking inward)
  • Empathy (looking through others’ eyes)
  • Systems Critique (looking at forces of inequality and oppression)
