In 2022, ECU received the Macy Award for Institutional Excellence for its community service learning model, promotion of primary and rural care, and efforts to recruit diverse students. Of the award, Dean Chadwick said, “The Macy Award signifies that we are part of a unique community of individuals, institutions and organizations working together to heighten the importance of health equity and contribute to the greater good. Being honored with a Macy Award means that the ECU School of Dental Medicine is doing what it was created to do: opening doors of access to the patients often left without care, and it challenges us to be more innovative in our pursuit of solutions.”
