These are the events–in short form–that the University of Michigan is staging this coming October and November.[ The Peace Corps is not involved in these events, nor is the NPCA.] The University of Michigan is doing these celebrations for¬† its students and RPCV alums.] In the next few days, I’ll give out more details of what U-M has planned for the fall.
