ECU Policy Statement: ECU's Email Policy for All Communication

The principal mode of communication for East Central University (ECU) is through ECU email.  All persons are expected to regularly check their ECU email for messages.  ECU email should be the platform used to communicate information to any ECU personnel including instructors and administrative office staff within the bounds of the university’s acceptable email use and privacy policies. 

Faculty: Please post in your Blackboard Shell or Syllabus-

Some students have experienced difficulty in communicating with faculty through email. In an effort to help students successfully communicate, we have provided the following statement: The statement below explains to students that replying to faculty should be done from within their ECU email Outlook 365 account. Using any other email account to *reply to a faculty member will not reach the faculty member.
