Hearty congratulations to the Boulder campus of C.U. for being the number
one school in 2011 in providing the Peace Corps with 117 undergraduate
alumni currently serving overseas in the Peace Corps. C.U. has been in
the top three providers of volunteers since 2004. And for the first time
this year, both C.U. and Colorado State University in Fort Collins made
the top 10.
C.U.-Boulder is the number 5 all-time school for volunteers, having sent
2,269 volunteers into Peace Corps service since it was established by
President Kennedy in 1961. Currently, the Peace Corps has 8,655 American
volunteers working in 77 countries.
The Peace Corps is just one of 12 campus programs overseen by CU-Boulder’s
Institute for Ethical and Civic Engagement. Congratulations to the institute
for its excellent performance.
