Four-Year Baccalaureate University Hosts Annual Event To Recognize Student Achievement Across The 2011-2012 Academic Year


RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that its annual Student Showcase, which celebrates scholarship and creativity by recognizing academic and artistic accomplishments, will be held on Thursday, April 19 on campus from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. with Musical Theatre Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Arts students and the Peace Singers performing from 7:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. A campuswide conference-style event, Student Showcase brings together the entire university community, including students, faculty, staff, parents, university board members, alumni and community supporters. The event will provide students with an opportunity to present academic research, debates and documentaries, as well as artistic performances of music, theater and poetry readings. Broken into mini sessions throughout the day, Student Showcase will encompass multiple components of the William Peace University academic and artistic educational experience, including presentations regarding ethical decision making, research in psychology and anthropology, an ethnographic study on generations, collegiate successes and social issue documentaries.


"Student Showcase has become an annual tradition for students and for William Peace University supporters," said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. "The event gives all students the opportunity to shed light on their academic and artistic efforts and achievements that they have been tirelessly creating during the school year. At the same time, it allows supporters of our campus to witness the talent of all university students. We look forward to what our students will offer this year and are proud to celebrate in their outstanding accomplishments."



William Peace University is located in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. It was founded in 1857 as Peace Institute, offering education for boys and girls in primary grades and to women from high school to college. Peace, an all women’s college, became a four-year baccalaureate college and graduated its first bachelor’s students in August of 1996. Exclusively an all-women’s institution for its first 152 years, Peace began offering coeducational evening courses through the William Peace School of Professional Studies in 2009. In 2011, Peace College transitioned to William Peace University and will begin admitting male students to its day program in fall 2012. Its mission is to prepare students for careers in the organizations of tomorrow. On average, more than 90 percent of the university’s graduates are placed in jobs or graduate school within one year of graduation. For more information, please visit http://www.peace.edu.
