The Peace Corps and Western Michigan University have announced a new partnership that will offer students a unique combination of undergraduate coursework and community service that prepares them for an international career.

Western Michigan University students will be able to apply to the new Peace Corps Prep program for enrollment beginning in Spring Semester 2016.

“Students today have a passion for service and are interested in not just imagining a better world, but rolling up their sleeves and doing something about it,” Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet said. “Through the Peace Corps Prep program, Western Michigan University students can develop skills specifically targeted to Peace Corps service and careers in the international development and service communities.”
