William Peace University Hosts IOPL’s First Ever Graduating Class of Women in Office
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Holds Graduation for Inaugural Class
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, continues to celebrate the first ever graduation of the inaugural class of the Institute of Political Leadership’s Women in Office, which was held at the school on Saturday, July 20, 2013.
Over the course of six days, the University provided the graduates with several amenities, including meals, accommodations in campus residence halls, meeting facilities and a variety of support services.
Dr. David McLennan, a Political Science Professor at the University and Faculty Lead for the Program, along with Michael Pearlmutter, Executive Director, and IOPL Chairman of the Board (former) Chief Justice Henry Frye, awarded diplomas to the twelve graduates of the class.
The ceremony also included recognition for the commitment of the IOPL Board of Directors. The program was first started as part of a merger between The Institute of Political Leadership (IOPL) and the North Carolina Center for Women in Public Service (NCCWPS).
