Preparing students to go global.
Since 1961, the Peace Corps has sent dedicated volunteers to more than 140 countries across the world.
Missouri State University students are one step closer to joining the effort with the Peace Corps Prep Program, sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement (CCE). In fall 2018, MSU was one of 27 institutions nationwide invited to apply to host a prep program. The university became a partner school in February 2019.
As a Peace Corps affiliated institution, Missouri State can suggest curriculum and provide guidance to students preparing to serve internationally and highlight their work in Public Affairs.
