Peace Corps and AREC Connections

The AREC Master of Science program has welcomed many students in our 80+ years history, specifically, the Department has seen many returned Peace Corps volunteers (RPCV).  The mapping of RPCVs is a project started by Ryan Young, an AREC MS student set to graduate in May 2019.  With Ryan's lead work and assistance from senior web designer/developer Troy Dean, the project has reached its finishing line and can be seen from the link below.  Users can view from a map, where AREC MS alumni and RPCVs have been and any information they have provided about their experience.  Check out the map and see where our students have been prior to joining our master's degree program.  For more information on the Peace Corps Coverdell Program visit
