The University of Wisconsin-Madison is celebrating 60 years of Peace Corps with a panel discussion including 10 former Peace Corps directors.
Moderated by former UW-Madison Chancellor Donna Shalala, one of the first to serve in Peace Corps (Iran, 1962–1964), these leaders will discuss the role of Peace Corps over the decades, stories of volunteering, changes in the organization, and the legacy of Peace Corps. This event will be held virtually, but viewers are invited to submit their questions to panelists during event registration. View more about this event here, and register below.
