A regional recruiter for the Peace Corps will be on the MTSU campus Wednesday, Oct. 28, to provide information on global service opportunities for students, faculty, staff and the campus community.
Organizers say the Peace Corps is an opportunity for participants to “return home with the experience and global perspective to stand out in a competitive job market” while making a real impact around the world.
An information table will be available for students from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Student Union atrium. A special information session will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. that same day in Room 218 of the MTSU Student Union.
The Peace Corps, according to its website, www.peacecorps.org, is a U.S. international service organization that sends Americans abroad “to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world.”
Peace Corps volunteers not only work at the grassroots level in international communities but also return home with a broader perspective of the world.
The Peace Corps’ mission includes helping people of interested countries meet their need for trained men and women and promoting a better understanding between Americans and people they serve in other countries.
The recruiter’s Oct. 28 visit to MTSU is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, the university’s Career Development Center and the University Honors College.
