William Peace University President Participates in Leadership Roundtable for WALTER Magazine


Dr. Debra M. Townsley Discusses Leadership Alongside Other Area College and University Presidents.

Raleigh, NC, March 23, 2013 --(PR.com)-- William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president, recently participated in a roundtable discussion hosted by WALTER magazine on leadership alongside other independent colleges and universities based in Raleigh that are overseen by female presidents. Beside Dr. Townsley, the WALTER panel was comprised of Jo Allen, Ph.D., president of Meredith College; Dorothy Yancy, Ph.D., president of Shaw University; and Dianne Boardley Suber, Ph.D., president of St. Augustine University.

With a focus specifically on higher education, the roundtable panelists shared their perspectives on how to teach leadership, how they themselves learned skills associated with the topic and how the city of Raleigh is playing a role in the creation of tomorrow’s leaders. Additionally, Townsley and her presidential counterparts evaluated the role of diversity in higher education and the learning curves throughout their professional career that assisted them in their approaches to education. The full discussion is available in the March issue of WALTER magazines at newsstands or online at http://www.waltermagazine.com/a-leader-is-four-college-presidents-on-lessons-learned-and-taught/.

Quotes:
“Being adaptable and transformational to change is critically important in effective leadership,” said Townsley. “What we have to realize is that change is the constant and, in order to be successful, we have to keep that in mind. Equally important is understanding that the most successful leaders are those who are good followers, as doing both is essentially important and interchangeable. If we can teach students that now, we are setting them on the path to success in the future.”
