UCD again among top Peace Corps recruiters

From page A4 | February 14, 2014 |

UC Davis notched a place for the 12th year and UC campuses continued to dot the top 25 of the U.S. Peace Corps’ annual rankings of top volunteer-producing campuses.

UCD tied UC Santa Cruz and the University of Illinois for 19th among campuses of more than 15,000 students. All three boasted 41 alumni serving overseas in 2013.

The UCD figure stood at 60 in 2012, 63 in 2011.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison reclaimed the top spot after an eight-year absence, with 90 alumni serving abroad. The University of Washington and the University of Florida, which shared top honors in 2013, slipped one spot to tie for second with 85 volunteers apiece.

Other UC campuses in the rankings: No. 6 UCLA, with 67 volunteers; No. 7 UC Berkeley with 66; No. 12 UC San Diego with 54; and No. 13 UC Santa Barbara with 48.

Berkeley has produced the most volunteers since 1961, with 3,576, followed by Wisconsin with 3,112.

Alumni from 154 California colleges and universities served in the corps last year — the most for any state.

Western Washington University and Gonzaga University topped 2013’s medium- and small-campus rankings with 65 and 22 volunteers serving, respectively. The University of Denver produced the most graduate student volunteers: 23.

The most common majors for volunteers were international studies, political science, psychology, biology and English.

The corps’ annual rankings are based on the self-reporting of its volunteers.
