Can there ever be too many college rankings? Yes, yes there can be! In any case, the Peace Corps has released their latest ranking of the top Peace Corps volunteer-producing universities across America. For their ranking, as logic would have it, the Peace Corps adds up the number of graduates who go on to serve in the Peace Corps and then ranks the schools based on this figure. So which universities across the land produce the most Peace Corps volunteers? We know it’s a question that’s kept you up late at night. Wonder no more!

University of Wisconsin Produces the Most Peace Corps Volunteers

Among universities with more than 15,000 undergraduates, the University of Wisconsin – Madison takes home the grand prize with 75 volunteers from its ranks. University of Virginia (74), University of Minnesota (70), University of Michigan – Ann Arbor (63), Ohio State University (62), University of Washington (62), and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (62) round out the top five among the big schools.

George Washington University Leads the Medium-Sized Schools in Volunteers

Among universities with 5,000 and 15,000 undergraduates, George Washington University takes home the top prize with 54 volunteers. America University (51), Tulane University (44), College of William and Mary (40), and Western Washington University (32) round out the top five among the medium-sized schools.
