Peace Corps Week celebrates how Peace Corps Volunteers make a difference in the United States and in countries throughout the world. President John F. Kennedy signed an executive order to establish the Peace Corps on March 1, 1961, and the observation of Peace Corps Week has been celebrated during this week ever since .
Our sMBA program is a proud partner in the Peace Corps Coverdale Fellows Program. In the past five years, nine returned volunteers have used their international training and experience to serve the underserved in Pittsburgh while pursuing their MBAs in our program. We salute them for their service to our university, community and the world!
