University of Chicago Top Producer of Peace Corps Volunteers for Second Consecutive Year

For the second consecutive year, the University of Chicago is the top producer of Peace Corps Volunteers for Small Colleges and Universities with 35. This accomplishment not only demonstrates the achievements made by Chicago students but also the global engagement of the students in their service and scholarship. The University of Chicago has also been very successful in recent years in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program with more students and alumni from the undergraduate College receiving Fulbright grants than the graduate students. You can read my previous blog post on the top producing institutions of Fulbright U.S. Student grants for 2008-2009 here.

The University of Washington (large college and university category) with 104 volunteers and George Washington University (medium college and university category) with 57 volunteers should also be congratulated on being the top Peace Corps Volunteer producers for their respective categories.
