Description
Record Series 88 contains the final reports of the Peace Corps Training Program at UCLA. Final reports were generated annually at the conclusion of a year's program. This collection includes reports from the Chile, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Latin America, Nigeria, and Peru Programs.
Background
The Peace Corps Program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) began shortly after the creation of the Peace Corps itself in March 1961. On August 30, 1961 UCLA announced that it would become the eighth Peace Corps training center, with training of Peace Corps Program candidates beginning in September 1961. The program began with a ten week training course for volunteers bound for Nigeria. UCLA's Peace Corps training programs were initially administered by UCLA's University Extension, subsequently becoming part of UCLA's International Studies and Overseas Programs (ISOP).
