Clark U.  Ranked as One of Top Peace Corps Producing Schools in Country

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

 

Clark University is number 23 on the Peace Corps' 2016 rankings of the top volunteer-producing colleges and universities. Clark is ranked on the list of small college and universities with 8 alumni currently volunteering all over the world. 

“Clark students come to campus with an interest in making the world a better place, and spend their time on a campus full of faculty engaged with contemporary issues like climate change and global development. It is of no surprise that they would be among the most engaged with these global challenges after graduation," says Ed Carr, director of the International Development, Community and Environment Department at Clark. 

Since 1961, 255 Clark alumni have served in the Peace Corps and this marks the second straight year that the University has ranked among the Peace Corps' top 25 small schools. 

The Rankings 

This year's rankings follow a 40-year high in applications for the Peace Corps in 2015. Alumni from over 3,000 colleges and universities nationwide have served in the Corps since the agency's founding in 1961.
