But one university in Raleigh is going against the grain. William Peace University has announced in a <a href="http://peace.edu/content/page/id/1303" target="_blank">letter</a> to students it's lowering tuition around 7.73 percent. That brings tuition to $23,700 for the 2012-2013 school year. Debra Townsley is the university president.

Peace College will change its name to William Peace University and admit men for the first time.</p><p>The changes are being made to strengthen a college that has taken its lumps of late. Earlier this year, Peace eliminated its music department and laid off a number of faculty members.</p><p>The decision to admit men is the latest and most significant change in the school's recent history. In the 1970s the school became a junior college and in the 1990s it awarded its first four-year degree.</p> Fri, 22 Jul 2011 09:35:00 +0000 Dave DeWitt 8320 at http://wunc.org
