The University of Puget Sound is No. 8 on a list of small colleges in this year’s rankings of Peace Corps volunteer-producing schools. The college has 21 undergraduate alumni currently serving in the program. UPS has placed in the top 10 each year since the Peace Corps started producing its annual report in 2001.
The University of Washington, the top school for four straight years among large schools, is in a three-way tie for third place with 94 volunteers.
