Office of Professional Education
The mission of the Office of Professional Education is to serve students by creating an environment supportive of personal and academic growth, while maintaining records of students’ accomplishments. This office includes the Office of Student Services and the UNC/ECSU PharmD Partnership Program. Located in the same building, these divisions are managed by executive associate dean Pamela U. Joyner, EdD.
The Office of Student Affairs serves as the primary information resource for both prospective and current students. The Office serves prospective students through admissions information sessions and application management, while providing services to more than five hundred current students. The Office has an in-school registrar who oversees the registration of students, course scheduling, verifications of enrollment and degrees, residency-for-tuition-purposes, criminal history checks, and academic progressions. This office is responsible for event planning that includes Orientation, Career Day, White Coat Ceremony, Awards Day, Family Day, and Graduation. Career counseling, tutoring, and advising are also responsibilities of this office.

The UNC/ECSU Doctor of Pharmacy Partnership Program was established by the North Carolina legislature with three goals in mind.
- To increase the number of pharmacy graduates from the University of North Carolina system
- To increase the number of pharmacists practicing in underserved areas of the state, particularly in northeastern North Carolina
- To develop a workforce of pharmacy practitioners and educators that reflects the ethnic and cultural diversity of the citizens of the state
These goals are being pursued through an interinstitutional collaboration between the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and Elizabeth City State University. Students are admitted into a single accredited degree program through a single admission process with the participation of faculty representing both campuses. Upon completion of degree requirements, students receive a doctor of pharmacy from UNC-Chapel Hill with acknowlegement of the partnership with ECSU.
For more information contact Carla White Harris, the interim regional associate dean at ECSU, at email@example.com or 919-966-7571.
The Office of Experiential Education coordinates and manages all aspects of experiential education (rotations) for the School. From introductory experiences in hospitals and community pharmacies, to advanced experiences with innovative and progressive pharmacy practices, the OEE works with students, preceptors, and regional faculty to ensure a highly successful learning experience system. The OEE oversees rotations spanning the entire state of North Carolina, from sites in the Appalachian mountains to the Outer Banks, and even national and international rotation sites. The OEE also coordinates other aspects of experiential education such as the PY4 seminar course, the Clinical Scholars Track, and preceptor training and development.
