Peace Corps Representative Speaks to Students

Truman students will have the opportunity to hear from a representative from the Peace Corps during a video conference at 6 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Career Center.

Earlier this year Truman was ranked 25th on the Peace Corps’ list of medium-sized schools producing volunteers. Since the organizations inception, 154 alumni have joined its ranks. Truman currently has 20 alumni serving as Peace Corps volunteers. The University ranks No. 87 for the number of graduate school alumni participating and is the No. 281 producer of volunteers all-time.
