An Opportunity to Serve
The Colorado School of Mines Peace Corps Prep certificate program — the first in the state — is a partnership between Mines and the US Peace Corps. It is administered by the school’s groundbreaking Humanitarian Engineering program in the Engineering, Design, and Society division, but is open to all students in all majors. The program will help you become a better Peace Corps volunteer candidate (if that’s where your path takes you after graduation) and a better global citizen.
