The Office of Campus Involvement strives to enhance student life by promoting involvement in the ECU community as well as leadership development. This mission is accomplished by providing educational, social, and cultural campus-wide programming through ECU’s student activities board, and by providing direct advisement for the governing bodies of ECU’s six chapters of (inter)national Greek-letter organizations and one local chapter.
 
The Office of Campus Involvement also provides services, leadership development resources and recognition programs for nearly sixty student organizations. Student Organizations connect students with a stronger sense of community, develop group building and leadership skills, and serve as an outlet for self-expression and sharing of talents. The Office provides assistance with student organization recognition, organization recruitment and retention, publicizing on campus, and event planning.
