Universities in Washington State Lead Rankings of Peace Corps Volunteers

For the first time, three institutions in a single state have swept the Peace Corps’s annual rankings of the large, medium, and small universities that supply the most volunteers to the service program. The University of Washington, Western Washington University, and Gonzaga University led the new rankings for 2012 in those three categories, respectively. The University of Washington was tied with the University of Florida for the top spot on the large-university list, with 107 undergraduate-alumni volunteers. The University of California at Berkeley continues to lead all institutions in the cumulative number of alumni that have served in the Peace Corps’s history, with 3,544 volunteers.
