For the third year in a row, UVA ranks in the top five schools of its size for Peace Corps volunteers.
They’re teaching English in Madagascar, helping high schoolers lead healthier lives in Nicaragua and running university classes for Chinese ethnic minorities. And they’ve made UVA one of the Peace Corps’ top volunteer sources three years running.

The Cooper Center’s newest population projections for the nation and individual states show slow-but-steady growth, with the highest increase in the number of residents over 65. Lower birth rates and decreased immigration will contribute to this trend.
