Alums put MU on top 25 Peace Corps list
Miami is tied at No. 12 on the Peace Corps’ top 25 list for medium-sized schools with 34 alumni currently serving as volunteers. Since the Peace Corps’ inception in 1961, 766 Miami alumni have joined the ranks, making the university the No. 43 producer of volunteers for all time.
“We encourage our students who come to see us about study abroad to also consider the Peace Corps — one of the best things about America,” said David Keitges, director of international education.
In Ohio, the only other school in a top 25 list this year is Oberlin College, in the small schools category, tied for 24th with 15 volunteers.
