Vice President for University Advancement

Located on a 21-acre campus in the heart of Raleigh, NC, William Peace University (WPU) was founded in 1857 as Peace Institute, offering education for boys and girls in primary grades and to women from high school to college.  By 1940, Peace offered an academic program for young women that encompassed the last two years of high school and the first two years of college.  During the mid-1990s, Peace College transitioned into a four-year baccalaureate institution awarding its first baccalaureate degree in 1996.  Additionally, Peace began offering coeducational evening courses through the William Peace School of Professional Studies in 2009.  In 2011, the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to transition Peace's day program to coeducational and to rename the college William Peace University.  The first male students matriculated in the 2012-13 academic year.  Rooted in the liberal arts tradition, students develop an appreciation for life-long learning, a focus on meaningful careers, and skills for ethical citizenship.

Today William Peace University, a four-year, coeducational, residential, liberal arts university offers three undergraduate degrees: BA, BS, and BFA.  The University offers 18 majors; all classes are taught by faculty; and the student to faculty ratio is 15:1.  With approximately 1,040 students, there are 800 traditional college day students and 240 students in the School of Professional Studies.  As a member of the USA South Athletic Conference, this NCAA Division III institution competes in six women’s and six men’s intercollegiate varsity sports.

William Peace University offers the comfort of a small school with all the possibilities of a big city.  The historic campus has carved out its own niche in downtown Raleigh, NC.  In addition to being named the No. 1 ranking in Businessweek's list of America's 50 Best Cities in 2011, Raleigh was also ranked one of the top five Hottest Job Markets for Young Adults, a Top 10 Technology Town, a Top 10 City for Singles, and a Top 10 Best City to Live.  For additional information, please visit the William Peace University website at www.peace.edu.

Reporting directly to the President of the College and serving on the President’s cabinet, the Vice President for University Advancement will be a strategic partner with the President, and provide leadership, motivation, coordination, and support for the planning and implementation of the University’s donor identification, cultivation, and management strategies.  The VPUA will be responsible for building, structuring, and leading a department that will focus on the generation of contacts both in and outside the WPU community, reconnect with alumni and build alumni support, and build corporate, community, foundation, and institutional partnerships in the region and throughout the country.  Other positions reporting to the President include: Chief Academic Officer, VP for Administration and Chief Financial Officer, Chief Information Officer, VP for Student Services, Associate VP for Human Resources, and the Executive Assistant to the President.  Positions reporting to the VPUA include the Director of Communications and Outreach.

The ideal candidate will have a superior knowledge of the principles, practices, and ethics of successful fundraising along with a successful track record promoting an organization's fundraising priorities including securing major gifts from individuals, foundations, and/or corporations.  This innovative and strategic thinker will also possess strong leadership, interpersonal and communication skills.  A bachelor’s degree is required; advanced degree preferred.  Compensation is commensurate with experience including a competitive base salary and benefits package.
