William Peace University Names Joshua Neaves
Assistant Director of Residential Life & Housing
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Welcomes Staff Member To Ensure Student Safety And Assist In Housing Needs
RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 14, 2013 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Joshua Neaves has been named assistant director for residential life & housing. In his position, Neaves will be responsible for overseeing student conduct, assisting other campus staff members and student employees as they perform duties that provide safety to WPU students, as well as supervising students residing at Wolf Creek Apartments. Additionally, he will serve on various university committees and work with other student services on campus as needed. He is a member of the National Orientation Directors Association.
Neaves has four years of professional experience. He earned his Master of Science in higher education student personnel at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas where he served as the graduate assistant for two offices: student affairs administration and dean of students. For the student affairs administration office, Neaves coordinated its Distinguished Lecture Series and the Eagle EDGE program, where he organized speaking events that included Dr. Robert Gates, John Legend and Dr. Robert Huizenga. As graduate assistant for the dean of students office, he served as conduct officer, investigating and adjudicating any violations of the Code of Student Conduct. In addition, Neaves worked at Texas Woman’s University in Denton as a part-time orientation coordinator for the institution’s spring and summer sessions.
Prior to those roles, Neaves earned his Bachelor of Science in multidisciplinary studies with a concentration in social studies at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. Listed twice among “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges,” Neaves became the first recipient for the Student Affairs Lifetime Achievement Award at McMurry University, where he served as student body president and a representative on its board of trustees.
“When William Peace University entered into an agreement with Wolf Creek Apartments this year to provide off-campus housing for our sophomore, junior and senior students, we knew we needed to have an experienced individual to serve as liaison and handle coordination of efforts between the apartments and the university,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Joshua has a strong record of leadership among college students that makes him ideal to be our assistant director of residential life and housing. We are pleased to have him contribute to our new venture.”
“I am excited to have this position with William Peace University where I can actively pursue my passion of student conduct and help college students become successful,” said Neaves. “I look forward to educating students about the choices they make as an adult while ensuring they have a safe and pleasant experience living at Wolf Creek and on the university campus as well.”
