In 2016, UNC President Margaret Spellings established a working group to address enrollment declines and budget cuts. ECSU is now one of three universities designated as an NC Promise school, with in-state annual tuition at $1,000. The program’s launch this fall led to a 19 percent enrollment increase. The university also received a $20 million U.S. Department of Agriculture loan to revamp residence halls and restructure debt.
