William Peace University Announces Partnership With Wake Technical Community College For Transfer2Success ProgramBy on November 3, 2011 11:47 am
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Partners With Local Community College For College Transfer Program
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced Transfer2Success, a partnership with Wake Technical Community College offering students a community college transfer program. Once a student has completed two and a half years of education at Wake Tech, this program will allow the student admission to William Peace University, with the ability to earn a bachelor’s degree from the latter in one and a half years. Program transfer students, who will be taught by William Peace University faculty members, will have the option to take the remaining courses needed in earning their bachelor’s degree on the campus of Wake Tech. An official agreement was signed between Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., William Peace University president, and Stephen C. Scott, Ed.D., Wake Technical Community College president, on Nov. 3.
"We could not be more excited to announce our partnership with Wake Technical Community College," said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D. "The Transfer2Success program offers a fluid transition for community college students, designed to provide them with the direction and guidance needed for completion of a university baccalaureate degree, while conveniently allowing them to remain on the campus of Wake Tech if desired."
"This is a major addition for Wake Technical Community College to offer our students the ability to participate in a transfer program that will earn them a bachelor’s degree from a major private university while they attend our campus," said Stephen C. Scott, Ed.D. "I thank everyone at William Peace University who worked with us in creating this milestone achievement, and I urge all students to review the requirements of the Transfer2Success program and consider pursuing it if they find it helps them meet their future educational goals."
Joining Dr. Townsley and Dr. Scott in attendance for the formal signing agreement were Debbie Cottrell, Ph.D., provost of William Peace University, Laurie Albert, vice president and dean of the School of Professional Studies at William Peace University, Veatrice Carabine, director of the School of Professional Studies at William Peace University, Bryan Ryan, senior vice president of curriculum education at Wake Tech and Sandy Dietrich, associate vice president of career programs at Wake Tech.
