Celebrating 50 Years of Study Abroad


In 1962, bound for a new study abroad program, the first class of UW-Madison and University of Michigan students to study in Aix-en-Provence, took ship for France. To mark 50 continuous years of life-changing study abroad in Aix, some 40 program alums, friends, and family members converged on the city for three days in June 2012 during which they renewed their acquaintance with the academic program, Provence, and each other. You can see photos from the anniversary celebration by viewing the slide show on the website:

Alumni and friends of the UW supported the agency's mission and legacy of service by honoring the past 50 years of the Peace Corps, while inspiring the next generation of volunteers through an evening of discussion, education and engagement.
