I am pleased to announce that the College of Forest Resources has been awarded a Peace Corps Masters International Program under a recently signed Memorandum of Cooperation between the US Peace Corps and the University of Washington. We will work to develop a PCMI master's degree in the College of Forest Resources over the course of the next year with the goal of accepting students into the program for the 04-05 Academic Year. A CFR Peace Corps Advisory Committee, comprised of Ivan Eastin (Chair), Bob Gara, and John Perez-Garcia has been formed to design this new program.
Currently the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs has an existing Peace Corps Master's International Program in Public Affairs and the School of Public Health and Community Medicine is working to design a new program as well.
