Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

Faculty, student, and alumnus Returned Peace Corps Volunteers

Returning from service in the Peace Corps is one of the hardest things a volunteer can do. Volunteers not only leave behind their international families and friends, they also have to readjust to a fast-paced American culture, wholly different from their two year experience. Tulane Peace Corps Program supports students who are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers by creating a community where RPCVs can interact and connect with one another academically and socially. This Peace Corps community is not only made up of students, but also the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine staff, many of whom are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.

Past activities with RPCVs Include:

  • BBQ and Social Events
  • NO AIDS Walk in New Orleans
  • Rebuilding Together New Orleans
  • Mentoring Global Students
  • Seminar Panel Participants
  • RPCV Happy Hours
  • New Orleans themed Social Events

Tulane welcomes Returned Peace Corps Volunteers into their various Master's programs, and the Peace Corps Programs office and Tulane Peace Corps community are available to help make the transition from service to school as smooth as possible.
