Missouri State University is partnering with the Peace Corps to offer a program to prepare MSU students who want to serve. 

The program focuses on preparing students to serve internationally as Peace Corps volunteers. Coursework includes a focus on training for work overseas, foreign language lessons, intercultural competence and professional and leadership development.

Missouri State’s Center for Community Engagement heads the program. The head of the CCE, Alex Johnson, says the program will make it easier for MSU students to get involved with the Peace Corps.
