    Taylor’s school made the list.
    Tulane University is ranked #10 among medium schools and #1 among graduate schools on Peace Corps list of Top Volunteer-Producing Colleges and Universities. Taylor graduated with her bachelor’s degree in public health and Africana studies in 2013, and then departed for the Peace Corps. As a health volunteer in Benin, Taylor worked on a variety of health-related projects including distributing mosquito nets in her community, and was ultimately able to give over 100 pregnant women and new mothers nets to prevent malaria. After completing her service in 2016, Taylor earned her master’s degree in public health at @tulaneu. Looking back, Taylor says joining the Peace Corps was the wisest decision she ever made.

    “The motto of Tulane is ‘Not for oneself, but for one's own’ and I think that my university does a fantastic job of instilling this motto in its students. At Tulane, community service is tied to learning. Through these service opportunities, Tulane students truly realize that we have an obligation to one another. I really took this motto to heart and whether I'm in New Orleans or Benin, I strive to advocate for others through service. Tulane has a ‘person-centered’ approach that I think really echoes the mission of the Peace Corps.”
