UM graduates have a long tradition of serving as Peace Corps Volunteers in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Since the Peace Corps was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, over 700 UM graduates have served as Peace Corps Volunteers. In 2008, UM was ranked 10th in the nation when compared with other medium-sized colleges and universities (more than 5,000 and less than 15,000 undergraduates). As a Peace Corps Volunteer, you can put your skills, education and training to practical use and make a difference in areas such as:
- Environmental planning or education
- TESL, secondary education, vocational education or teacher training
- Business advising, cooperative development or information technology
- Community development, youth programs, or social services
- Health or AIDS/HIV education
