27 Jun 2019
The University of Texas at Austin has numerous outstanding rankings, so it should come as no surprise that among its many accolades is a ranking that recognizes the Longhorn spirit of service. UT Austin continues to be the No. 1 top-producing university of Peace Corps volunteers in Texas and was recognized this year as No. 11 in the country among large colleges and universities, reflecting the university’s commitment to public service and effecting positive change in the community, state, the nation and world.
For most Longhorns, the university’s motto is a call to action, and more than 1,840 alumni have served as Peace Corps volunteers since the organization was founded in 1961. Currently, 53 Longhorns are living and working in communities across the globe in education, health, community economic development, agriculture, environment and youth development.
