By  | 

GREENVILLE, N.C. – The East Carolina University Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities and the ECU Police Department have concluded its respective investigations of the Pirate swimming and diving program following a reported incident on August 25 and determined there will be no team disciplinary action taken or charges filed.

The Department of Athletics, which immediately withheld both men's and women's squads from all team activities to protect the integrity of the investigation after being made aware of the incident, was informed of the inquest results by both entities Thursday.

While the teams have been allowed to resume practice and team activities, the OSRR could make recommendations based on its findings for individual student-athletes who may be found in violation of the school's student code of conduct.

The ECU Student Code of Conduct, which governs students' on- and off-campus conduct, is administered by the OSSR. The Office is also engaged in campus education on various issues, such as academic integrity, citizenship development and conflict resolution.
