Peace Corps Director Jody Olsen will travel to UW–Madison Nov. 28–30 to celebrate UW–Madison ranking as #1 on Peace Corps’ Top Volunteer Producing Colleges and Universities list for the second year in a row.

Olsen will meet with UW–Madison leadership, take part in a faculty roundtable, and also present at a student recruiting session.

The faculty roundtable will offer opportunities for faculty from area studies, languages, and other disciplines to discuss areas of development with the director, including training materials and other resources for volunteers.

During the student recruiting session, Olsen is expected to discuss the continuing need for critical, scarce skills and individuals from diverse background in the Peace Corps. Students will also have the opportunity to have their questions answered directly by the Peace Corps director.
