East Carolina University
Established in 1907 as state-supported normal school. A four-year college since 1920. A university since 1967.

This historical marker is located on Tenth Street at College Hill Drive in Greenville. It was erected in 1971.

The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources has an essay on East Carolina University, from which the following is excerpted:

East Carolina Teachers Training School was established in Greenville in 1907 at the behest of former Governor and Greenville resident Thomas Jordan Jarvis. A lifetime proponent of public education, Jarvis was an advocate for teacher training during his public service career and was tapped by locals to sway the legislature to approve an institute of higher education in Greenville. Eight eastern North Carolina sites were considered, but Greenville was selected after much deliberation.
