SCU ranks 11th nationally on the list of small universities that produce overseas volunteers for the Peace Corps.

Santa Clara University ranks 11th nationally on the list of small (under 5,000 undergraduates) universities that produce overseas volunteers for the Peace Corps. The annual ranking by the federal agency states that 19 Santa Clara alumni are serving as Peace Corps volunteers. Last year, 14 Santa Clara alumni served as volunteers.

“The Peace Corps and Santa Clara University have developed a significant relationship over the years,” said University President Paul Locatelli, S.J. “By using the skills they acquired at this Jesuit university, our students are making a big difference in communities all over the world.”

Other Jesuit universities with alumni serving in the Peace Corps are Gonzaga University, Marquette University, Georgetown University, and Boston College.
