Meet the New Chancellor of ECU

Dr. Cecil Staton

Cecil Staton has a career about as varied as any university leader—a religion scholar, faculty member, administrator, entrepreneur and state senator in Georgia. On April 27, the 1980 Furman graduate was elected as East Carolina University’s next chancellor by the UNC Board of Governors. Staton, who is interim president of Valdosta State University in Georgia and vice chancellor for extended education for the University System of Georgia, starts the ECU job on July 1.  Read more in the Raleigh, N.C., News & Observer.
