Did you know that UW-Madison has a long, proud history with the Peace Corps? Last week, our campus was again named the nation’s “top producer of Peace Corps volunteers.” You can read more about our history with the Peace Corps here.

This news comes at a particularly interesting time, as Go Big Read’s 2014-15 theme is “service.” Last week, the selection committee met to establish a shortlist of books to consider; for the next few weeks, we’ll be reading and discussing these books. It’s an exciting time, and while we can’t give any hints yet, we can’t wait until we make an official announcement!
There are a lot of reasons to be proud of being a Badger, and our history of service is definitely one of them. You can find out more about the Peace Corps on the organization website, and check out the annual rankings of universities. If you’re interested in volunteering for the Peace Corps, stop by the UW-Madison Peace Corps office in 156 Red Gym, or visit their website.
