Learn how William Peace University can help you achieve your career aspirations.

William Peace University is a nationally ranked, award-winning institution located in one of the best cities in the United States in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

Our mission is to prepare you for careers in the organizations of tomorrow. Rooted in the liberal arts tradition, you will develop an appreciation for life-long learning, a focus on meaningful careers, and skills for ethical citizenship.

Don’t just be in your chosen field; stand out in it. That’s the Peace advantage.

At William Peace University, we know good students can become great students through an approach to higher education that’s less conventional and more involved. Here, you will participate, collaborate, and gain valuable real-world experience. You will complete an internship, career development courses, a personal financial management class, and a four-year writing program. At Peace, we won’t just know your name—we’ll know your interests and aspirations. And we’ll work together to help you achieve them.

Experiential + Immersive Learning

Experiential + Immersive Learning is the process of learning through experience and applying what you’ve learned in an active environment.

At WPU, we think it’s important that you broaden your horizons. Sometimes that means pushing you out of your comfort zone, but for good reason and one goal in mind: to make you a better overall student. This will better prepare you for graduate school, your next career, and a more purposeful life.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “I love living on campus. There’s always something to do, and with downtown Raleigh just steps away, you’ll never get bored.”

    • Anna Grace Wyneken ’18
  • “As a transfer student myself, I know what you may be thinking. That’s why I highly recommend that you come and schedule a tour of campus and see if it’s the right fit for you. I decided to come to WPU because I was impressed with its Communication program and a lot more.”
