Pre-Peace Corps Info Session

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Description: Be part of a UM tradition that goes back to the very beginning of the Peace Corps. On October 14, 1960 on the steps of the Michigan Union, then Senator John F. Kennedy gave an unprepared campaign speech challenging Michigan students to devote a few years of their life working in developing countries around the world. Within weeks, 1,000 UM students had signed a petition calling for the establishment of the Peace Corps program. Less than a year later, the federal Peace Corps agency was formed.
