Mar 9, 2016 by

Howard University is among the Peace Corps’ annual listing of the colleges and universities with the most alumni serving as volunteers.

Howard currently has 16 graduates working in the Peace Corps, which puts the school in 14th place on the list of medium-size colleges and universities that have 5,000 to 15,000 undergraduate students. George Washington University in northwest D.C. tops that category with 43 graduates.

The University of Washington held the top spot again this year with 72 graduates working in the Peace Corps, ahead of the University of Wisconsin.

Howard is the only historically black college and universities to make the list of the top 25 in the three categories of large universities, medium-size colleges and universities and small colleges and universities.
