Use your skills to make a difference in the lives of others and your own. Serving in the Peace Corps is a great way to help a community in need, immerse yourself in a new culture, learn a new language, and have the experience of a lifetime. Join us at this Information Session to learn about Volunteer experiences, have your questions answered, and gain tips to guide you through the application process. Dr. Edwin Dove (Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering) and Meredith Mahy Gall (UI Peace Corps Recruiter) will share their volunteer experiences in Chile and Botswana. Engineering majors work in a variety of assignment areas in the Peace Corps including environmental and water resources engineering, math teaching, science teaching, and other areas based on their individual backgrounds.

Peace Corps service is the opportunity of a lifetime and offers two years of international experience immediately upon graduation. Meet your campus representative to have your questions answered and gain tips to guide you through the application process.
