UC Davis climbs in Peace Corps rankings
UC Davis ranks 21st among all large universities in producing Peace Corps volunteers, the Peace Corps announced this week in unveiling its Top 25 Colleges list for 2008.

Last year, the university ranked 22nd. Currently, 45 UC Davis alumni serve in the Peace Corps. Since Peace Corps' inception, 1,258 Davis alumni have served, making it the No. 15 producer of volunteers of all time. Peace Corps representatives honored UC Davis officials and students in a special presentation Thursday on campus. The presentation was followed by a Peace Corps information session for students considering joining the volunteer organization. The Peace Corps has more than 8,000 volunteers in 74 countries.

Faculty, staff asked to update directories
The campus is asking all faculty and staff to update their UC Davis Directory listings online by Jan. 22 so that the printed directory to be distributed this spring will have current information.

Directions on how to update directory listings online are included in a letter to staff and faculty from Jill Blackwelder, associate vice chancellor for safety services in the Office of Administration, and Pete Siegel, vice provost for Information and Educational Technology and chief information officer.

The Jan. 22 deadline is important because soon thereafter the campus directory group will use the information as it starts working on the 2008 print edition of the directory. The information will also be available through the people search function on the main campus Web site.
