Peace Corps Prep Program

Puget Sound has partnered with the United States Peace Corps to launch the Puget Sound Peace Corps Prep Program!

Among national colleges with less than 5,000 undergraduate students, Puget Sound consistently ranks among the top five in the number of alumni serving in the Peace Corps (tied for no. 1 in 2016). In addition more than 75 percent of students participate in community service, among the highest participation rates in the country.


The Peace Corps Prep Program will allow students to do the following:

  • Acquire skills that will provide a solid background and training for international service
  • Become engaged in the Tacoma Community
  • Combine coursework and volunteer experiences that promote community engagement and public service
  • Enhance and strengthen their career planning
