Calling all Peace Corps volunteers – Tell us your story

The Peace Corps celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.  In honor of that event, we are looking to share the stories of UC staff and alumni who served in the Peace Corps.

The University of California has a long history of Peace Corps service. UC campuses send more alumni to volunteer than any university in the country. Many of our faculty and staff began their public service careers in the Peace Corps. And UCLA was one of the original training locations for the first groups of volunteers.

In March, we will launch a website that celebrates the UC connection and shares your Peace Corps stories.  To participate, please contact Donna Hemmila, managing editor of integrated communications at
