2017: UO is Ranked #11 Nationally for Peace Corps Volunteer Numbers!

On March 20th, UO’s online newsletter, “Around the O,” featured an article about the number of Duck alumni who volunteer with the Peace Corps after graduation.

In the International Studies department, we are proud of our many Ducks who go on to join the Peace Corps as volunteers and as employees following their graduation!

Sam Burke (BA, 2009) currently works for the Peace Corps Colombia in Barranquilla, Colombia in the area of Programming and Training for incoming volunteers. 

Another International Studies graduate, Mia Lehman (BA 2015 – featured in the picture) wrote: “I graduated in June 2015 and am currently serving in the Peace Corps in Indonesia. There are actually three of us here who all graduated together from the INTL department.”
