PCMI 101

For all my altruistic reasons for serving, I do have one self-serving provocation for being here: I am earning college credit.

How does that work? Well, I applied to the University of Alaska Fairbanks PCMI Rural Development Master’s Program (mouth full isn’t it?), was accepted, spent a year taking courses (and completing the Peace Corps’ application progress) and in September, was off to AZ.

Why am I telling you all this again (presuming many of you are regular readers)? Well, a few weeks ago my Graduate Committee Chair left for a position in Scotland and another Committee member ask me about the subject areas which I will have to exhibit competency in to pass my Comprehensive Exam.

And, I wanted to get any new readers up to date.
