Donna Shalala on the Peace Corps
From - UM Libraries on August 13th, 2021
University of Miami President Donna Shalala gives her opinion that young people are good at organizing and at volunteering. She says that the Peace Corps symbolizes the Kennedy Era "because it was an era of youth and of energy and of eloquence and language" and patriotism. Shalala explains that she loves higher education because she believes young people are important, because their energy makes a difference. She estimates how most Peace Corps volunteers ended up, many of them leaders in their fields. She is asked to answer questions, but there the video is cut off.
