October 16, 2014
The Peace Corps has identified USF as a top volunteer-producing university in 2014. USF is ranked 5th in the nation among graduate schools with 13 alumni currently serving in the Peace Corps. This is a 30 percent increase from last year, when USF ranked 16th.
The USF Peace Corps Recruiting office, led by Peggy Defay, serves as a resource for students and the Tampa community. Through information sessions and workshops the office assists potential volunteers with the application process. The USF Peace Corps Recruiting office is unique as it is part of the Master’s International Peace Corps programs. Utilizing these programs students can earn their master’s degree and gain course credit in Public Health and Civil or Environmental Engineering while serving in the Peace Corps.
