Peace Corps Director Aaron Williams visits with alumna Sally Lazar, 86, at the CU Heritage Center Wednesday, January 25, 2012. Lazar volunteered the first year the Peace Corps was created and served abroad twice: in Tanzania (1961-1963), and Malawi (1987-1990). She is one of 2,317 CU-Boulder alumni to serve in the Peace Corps since its founding.
Director Williams held a public talk earlier that day to announce CU-Boulder’s No. 1 ranking for Peace Corps participation. CU-Boulder currently has 112 alumni, ranging in age from 21 to 77, volunteering for Peace Corps service. Each has pledged two years of service abroad under challenging conditions for the social and economic development of global communities. CU’s No. 1 Peace Corps ranking for two years in a row is tangible evidence of something we have always known: our Forever Buffs are service-oriented and down-to-earth, working tirelessly to benefit communities and people around the globe.
