Organizational Unit Overview:
The goal of Integrated Coastal Programs at ECU is to advance our understanding of the complex natural processes and socio-political processes that affect coastal environments and the resilience of communities located within the coastal zone. Certainly the northeast region of NC’s coastal plain provides a rich laboratory to investigate these processes and the interactions between human (individual and community) behavior and the coastal environment and then to draw on this understanding to develop effective public policy. This coastal enterprise is a fundamental reflection of ECU’s commitment to student success and regional transformation.
