William Peace University Earns SACS Reaccreditation

Four-Year Baccalaureate University Receives Approval Of Its Accreditation Reaffirmation Process From Regional Body Overseeing Higher Education Institutions 

RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private coeducational four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that the institution has been reaccredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southeast. William Peace University will continue to update SACS on its strategic plan and growth moving forward.

Every 10 years, all accredited colleges and universities nationwide must have their accreditation reaffirmed by their regional accrediting agencies. SACS is the longtime accreditor of William Peace University, having done so for more than 60 years. The review process took approximately three years and included completion of a Compliance Certification document to outline the extent to which the university is in compliance with core requirements and comprehensive standards. A Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) was completed, which informed SACS of our innovative curriculum on ethical decision making.

Accreditation by the Commission on Colleges signifies that William Peace University has a mission appropriate to higher education; has resources, programs, and services sufficient to accomplish and sustain that mission; and maintains clearly specified educational objectives that are consistent with its mission and appropriate to the degrees it offers, and that indicate whether it is successful in achieving its stated objectives.

ABOUT WILLIAM PEACE UNIVERSITY:               
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.

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.
