    Patriot Green Fund

    The Patriot Green Fund (PGF) strives to foster an environment where Mason can flourish academically in part through practicing environmental, social, and economic stewardship. This fund seeks to finance projects that have a high value in all three of these areas of sustainability. The fund will also work to raise awareness of and support for building a culture of sustainability on campus and in our communities. The PGF will empower students by providing them with an unprecedented opportunity to lead and direct projects that will create positive change. To strengthen the Mason community, all Mason students, faculty, and staff may propose and/or participate in a PGF-supported project. Infrastructure projects may only occur on Mason’s campuses, but research projects may help solve problems in any of Mason’s surrounding communities or the Metro D.C. region in general.

    Mason is a Partner School with the Peace Corps

    Since 2016, Mason has partnered with the U.S. Peace Corps to offer the Mason Peace Corps Prep program, designed to prepare qualified undergraduates for volunteer service and careers in international development after graduation. According to the Peace Corps, this program centers on one empowering question:

    How can you prepare yourself to be the best Peace Corps Volunteer you can be?

    Mason’s program attracts students across majors. Those currently enrolled are from: Business, Global Affairs, Communication, Environmental Science, Community Health, Government and International Politics, and International Studies. They are focusing on the areas of Education, Environment, Health, Youth in Development, and Community Economic Development.

    The program is designed to bolster skills in four areas: sector-specific skills, foreign language proficiency, intercultural competence, and professionalism and leadership. Students scope out a plan of coursework and experiential components in tandem with their academic advisor and Mason’s Peace Corps Prep coordinator. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate from the Peace Corps. Although receiving a Peace Corps Prep certificate does not guarantee acceptance into the Peace Corps, it does provide a unique credential for future job opportunities.
