William Peace University Names Steven Lambert Admissions Transfer Counselor

Four-Year Baccalaureate University Adds to Admissions Team with Hiring of New Transfer Counselor.

Raleigh, NC, December 03, 2014 --(PR.com)-- William Peace University, (http://www.peace.edu/) a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to announce the hiring of Steven Lambert as Admissions Transfer Counselor. Lambert brings admissions experience to WPU after serving as the Assistant Director of Admissions at his alma mater, St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, N.C. Having spent a few years post-graduation working in the Triangle, he decided to return to St. Andrews to help increase enrollment and be a part of a record-breaking team.

While living in the Raleigh-Durham area, Lambert was actively involved in the community through volunteer work with non-profits, specifically the Inter-faith Council for Social Services. He is eager to resume his efforts with non-profits, now that he has returned to live and work in the area. Originally from Massachusetts, Lambert studied Political Science and Philosophy as an undergrad and is currently working on his Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

Lambert has been active with the Carolina Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers (CACRAO), having been on its program committee in 2013. His primary responsibility at WPU will be to oversee all transfer applications and set appointments with prospective students and their families. “This includes developing an understanding of their path and helping them continue to the next best option, which is hopefully WPU,” Lambert said.

“I’ve become familiar with many institutions and admissions operations through my travel to various college fairs, parent panels, and financial aid panels,” Lambert said. “William Peace University has always stood out in my mind and I was fortunate enough to join this institution and team for the current recruitment cycle.”

“Steven is an experienced counselor who is sure to bolster our already outstanding admissions team,” said Debra M. Townsley, President of William Peace University. “He is a proven leader and our prospective and current students are lucky to have him as a source for information and guidance.”

“Our admissions department is really hands-on and that’s something that drew me to WPU when I was choosing a college,” said Josh Walker ’16. “The school takes pride in having experienced counselors who really care.”
