RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 20, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that the institution’s campus magazine, The Peace Bulletin, is the winner of two awards at the 2014 Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Southeast District III Conference in Orlando, F.L. The publication has been honored with the Grand Award in the category of “Writing – Publications Writing” and the Special Merit Award in the category of “Graphic Design – Editorial Design” for its 2013 summer edition. This marks the second consecutive year the publication has taken home an accolade from the conference after it was awarded the Grand Award in the category of “Graphic Design – Editorial Design” for its 2012 summer edition.
The Bulletin is published twice yearly, and focuses on faculty, students, staff and alumni-based stories as a way to recognize those who play an integral role in promoting the mission and vision of the institution. It is led by Lauren E. Gerber, Editor-In-Chief and Director of Communications and Outreach in the Office of Engagement, and an Advisory Board comprised of faculty, staff, students, Alumni, and community members.
Additionally, the University received the Award of Excellence in the category of “New Brand Identity.” WPU’s new brand identity campaign was led by Justin G.

Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our Bulletin strives to be the best, and to do that, it takes having a dedicated and talented team and branding from top to bottom. We could not be more proud.”
