Alumni aid Peace Corps cause

Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan

Traveling the world, 164 Oakland University alumni have dedicated their time and service to the Peace Corps in 70 different posts.

“As the preeminent international service organization of the United States, the Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world,” said Jessica Mayle, public affairs coordinator for the Peace Corps Midwest Region.

“Oakland University has a strong spirit of service and global perspectives that we love to see in Peace Corps applicants,” Mayle said. “A degree from OU coupled with two years of international field-experience with Peace Corps leaves alumni well prepared to launch careers, either back in the U.S. or internationally.”
