Sudden Resignation at Elizabeth City State

December 22, 2015

Stacey Franklin Jones will leave her position as chancellor of Elizabeth City State University on Dec. 31, after roughly a year on the job at the institution. The University of North Carolina System announced the resignation late Monday, without offering a reason. Over the last few years, Elizabeth City State has suffered significant enrollment and state appropriations declines and some legislators have suggested it should be closed or merged with another institution. The UNC announcement said that, at the request of Elizabeth City State, East Carolina University will provide "collaborative system efforts to build greater capacity throughout ECSU’s student support and operational units."
