Paula A. Wolf To Teach Public Policy Course At William Peace University

By William Peace University on September 26, 2012 4:59 pm

Local Four-Year Baccalaureate University Names Government Relations Professional With 19 Years Of Experience As Adjunct Faculty Member

RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Paula A. Wolf has been named an adjunct faculty member and will teach one of the university’s public policy courses beginning in the fall of 2012. A North Carolina governmental relations professional since 1993, Wolf serves as a contract lobbyist where she represents organizations, most often nonprofits, in front of the N.C. General Assembly as well as the executive branch of state government. As a lobbyist with more than 19 years of experience, she advises clients on public policy, strategy, media and public relations. Wolf is a pioneer in the implementation of grassroots lobbying on the Internet. Some of her clients include the March of Dimes Foundation, Health Care for All NC and Friends of Residents in Long Term Care. Wolf served as the executive director of the NC Child Fatality Task Force and was the chief lobbyist for the Covenant with NC’s Children. She has managed statewide judicial campaigns as well.

“To have an experienced governmental relations professional such as Paula join William Peace University come and teach one of our public policy courses is beneficial to our institution and our students,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “She has developed an extensive career and working knowledge of the public policies that govern our state and our nation, and her background will provide students with a real-world perspective of the law and other essential elements needed for strong and effective government relations.”

“One of the biggest challenges we face as a state and a nation is voter apathy. While some people around the world risk their lives for the opportunity to vote in a free election, Americans seem to take our right to vote for granted,” said Wolf. “I am pleased to motivate students at William Peace University to engage in the democratic process. For our system to work, we all must participate.”

Wolf earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and speech as well as an interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree in social sciences from Northeast Illinois University in Chicago. These were followed by a doctorate coursework and exams in the sociology of higher education at the University of Chicago.
