This year the Peace Corps commemorates 50 years of promoting peace and friendship around the world. Today, Boston University celebrates its long-standing relationship with the Peace Corps and the agency’s mission and legacy of service by honoring the past, demonstrating effectiveness and inspiring the next generation of volunteers.
Boston University’s Center for Global Health & Development along with the Peace Corps New England Regional Office and the Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers are pleased to sponsor an event at the Boston University’s Trustee Center (One Silber Way, 9th floor) from 4 to 7 PM.
