Because of its long-established commitment to service and volunteerism, and continued interest in Peace Corps opportunities, UW-Madison employs a campus-based Peace Corps Recruiter who is responsible for providing advice and insight to those interested in the Peace Corps organization.

The Recruiter is your face-to-face resource to learn about opportunities with the Peace Corps, the application process, and what the life of a Peace Corps Volunteer entails. The Peace Corps Recruiter is housed within the UW-Madison International Division.
