 RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Carmela Cohen-Perry has been named assistant director of financial aid. In her role, Cohen-Perry will work alongside the director of financial aid, Shawn Henderson, to manage the university’s financial aid program and ensure that all policies and procedures are met and remain compliant with federal, state and institutional regulations. Additionally, she will guarantee that the department is meeting and addressing all day-to-day functional and operational needs for students and parents.

Cohen-Perry brings more than 12 years of higher education experience, nine of which have been directly involved in financial aid. She has served in a number of positions across a range of North Carolina higher education institutions, from private, nonprofit, proprietary and historically black colleges and universities. Cohen-Perry earned a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from Saint Augustine’s College in Raleigh and an MBA from Strayer University.

“The office of financial aid plays a key component in ensuring an affordable education for our students,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “We are confident that Carmela’s financial aid experience over the last 12 years will prove to be an invaluable asset for our institution. Carmela understands the importance of affordability in higher education, and I look forward to working with her as we assist students of today and tomorrow in achieving their educational goals.”

“I am truly honored to join the staff of William Peace University as its assistant director of financial aid,” said Cohen-Perry. “As someone who wholeheartedly believes in the power of education and doors that it opens to transform lives and the future of all who pursue it, I look forward to supporting the office of financial aid as we address the needs of all students during their education at the 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. 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 welcomed its first coeducational class 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.
