The Peace Corps and Higher Education: Finally the Envisioned Partnership?
Quigley, Kevin F. F.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v17 n2 p137-150 2013
A number of structural and contextual changes underway suggests that now that the Peace Corps has begun its second half-century, it may be the opportune time for a broader and deeper strategic partnership with higher education along the lines that the Peace Corps founders' envisioned. That partnership would involve higher education playing an expanded role in recruiting, training, and evaluating Peace Corps volunteers to supplement the more than 100 existing partnerships between the Peace Corps and higher education in graduate study.
