Peace Corps

A Message from the Coordinator


Ohio State: "A solid source of alumni committed to making a difference at home and abroad" - the Peace Corps

In 2018, Ohio State was listed as #6 in producing the most Peace Corps volunteers among schools in the "Large Colleges and Universities" category. Since 1961, 1,821 Ohio State alums have served overseas.

“Ohio State expanded my mind and set me on a journey that brought me to the Peace Corps.” 

- Bethany Lewis, Ohio State Alum '14 and PCV in Botswana
