As we make a full return to campus after a period of absence related to the pandemic, it’s time to refresh our knowledge about health and safety protocols at ECU.

All staff and faculty are required to complete two updated online safety and threat orientations by no later than Friday, September 30, 2022.

Because it is our shared responsibility to create a safe and healthy environment at ECU – and know how to respond in the event of an emergency – this training is required of all employees.

Here’s how to access and complete the two required training modules:
