RALEIGH, N.C., July 17, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to announce the hiring of Dr. Amanda K.

“I am thrilled to join the faculty of William Peace University,” Bock said. “I am excited to become part of a university with such a strong commitment to quality education and to preparing students for success in their future careers. I look forward to helping our students develop into confident, committed, passionate, and reflective teachers.”
