Stevenson Center students and faculty serve communities around the world. The Center supports three graduate programs: the Peace Corps Fellows Program, the Applied Community & Economic Development Fellows Program, and the Peace Corps Master’s International Program. Students earn master’s degrees in anthropology, applied economics, kinesiology and recreation, political science, or sociology, each with an interdisciplinary sequence in applied community/economic development. Students employ their research skills through a capstone project or a thesis, often related to their required field experience. Students also investigate important community issues during their year on campus.
Launched in 2013, this collection is a work in progress, with new students adding their latest research while staff members gradually fill in alumni contributions. If you would like to be included in the Stevenson Center collection, please contact ISUReD@ilstu.edu.
