National Symposium: The Future of International Service

Date & time

Oct 13, 2010, 4:00-5:30 pm EDT


One of the U-M's major Peace Corps anniversary events will be a national symposium on the future of international service. The purposes of the day-long symposium are to propose and discuss new programmatic and policy initiatives; present research related to international volunteerism; share best practices in international volunteering programs; learn from voices, ideas and experiences from abroad; and, in the words of JFK, inspire students 'to serve the cause of peace' by volunteering overseas.

All panel and remarks sessions are open to the public, registration not required.

Sponsored by the University of Michigan, The Brookings Institution and the National Peace Corps Association, with support from the Building Bridges Coalition. Co-chaired by Susan M. Collins, Joan and Sanford Weill Dean of the Ford School.
