The ECU Women’s Roundtable aims to support East Carolina University by creating a culture of giving; building a strong volunteer base of women committed to advancing the university; forming a deeper pool of women capable of assuming leadership roles at ECU; building community among women graduates and providing a channel for alumnae to play an active role in the university.

Through leadership, service, networking, and philanthropy, the Roundtable recognizes the role women play in shaping the future of the region, the state and the nation.
