The UW is a leader again on the list of colleges and universities that send the most volunteers to work in the Peace Corps. Among large institutions, the UW came in second after sending 85 volunteers to the program in 2013. There were also 20 students from graduate programs. Since the Peace Corps was founded in 1961, the UW has sent over 2,800 volunteers. Read more from the Seattle Times.
