Make a difference in your community—local, national, or global
If you are interested in community development, service learning, Peace Corps Prep, and/or civic engagement, consider adding community engagement components to your pathway. Focusing on community engagement will prepare you for a career in public and professional service, international and community development, and/or a lifelong commitment in any profession to be an engaged and responsible citizen.
Consider adding community engagement to your pathway if...
- You enjoy volunteering and seeing its impact on individuals, environments, and society
- You're interested in government and public policy
- After graduation, you'd like to work with the Peace Corps, the government, or be mindful of the local and global impacts of decisions you'll make within your field
Peace Corps Prep Certification
Align your community engagement curriculum with U.S. Peace Corps requirements to earn a Peace Corps Prep certificate at graduation to use in your Peace Corps application. Michigan Tech is an official partner university with Peace Corps for this program and therefore tightly aligns requirements with skills and experiences desired by the U.S. Peace Corps. This certification will differentiate you from other applicants if you decide to apply for Peace Corps. The Peace Corps Prep certificate is also a prestigious addition to your resume, especially in fields such as education, health, environmental work, appropriate technologies, public service, and international and community development.
