Another Step Forward for ECU Dental School

A big step forward as ECU tries to set up a dental school.

The UNC Board of Governors Tuesday approved a proposal and sent it to the General Assembly that calls for $7,000,000 in planning for dental education. If approved, the money would be split between ECU and UNC Chapel Hill.

The UNC board still has to vote on the actual dental school program, which is expected in another six months.
