Kanoy To Lead Four-Year Baccalaureate College’s Institutional Research With More Than 30 Years Of Experience


RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Korrel Kanoy will serve as the university’s director of institutional research, where she will administer student assessments, both on the national and local level, to assist in the evaluation of academic progress. Through analysis of both academia and public opinion, Kanoy will use campus research collected for overall university improvements. With more than 30 years of service with William Peace University, beginning her career with the university as a psychology professor, Kanoy previously served as an assessment coordinator and associate dean for the university’s academic program evaluation.


"For the university and its student body to reach its highest level of performance capability, analysis and assessments must take place consistently," said Korrel. "I look forward to serving the university in this new role and am eager to witness the improvements that are to come."


"As a university, we are always looking to find opportunities for educational improvement, which is why the director of institutional research position was created," said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. "This position will provide the university with a better understanding of academic performance, and for someone who has been ingrained in the heart of William Peace University for decades, it could not be more fitting to have Korrel serve in this capacity."


Kanoy earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Richmond in Virginia and a doctoral degree in child development and family studies from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.


She is the author of Annie’s Lost Hat, a children’s picture book examining the establishment of emotional intelligence among children.
