Some alumni and others are questioning a plan by William Peace University to use two-thirds of its $33 million endowment to buy a retail center adjacent to campus, The Raleigh News & Observer reported.

Still others have raised questions about the university's refusal to release the names of the trustees who voted on the matter.
