B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations will serve as a cooperating agency for the United States Peace Corps program at colleges and universities throughout the nation, it was announced here today by Dr. William Haber, chairman of Hillel’s national commission.

Dr. Haber said that arrangements have been completed with Peace Corps officials to have the 217 Hillel Foundations in the United States act as information and application centers on the campus. “The Hillel program will make available its professional personnel and facilities to advance the cause for which the Peace Corps has been established, “he stated.

A copy of the new Peace Corps Fact Book, issued by the agency’s Washington headquarters, has been made available to Hillel Foundation directors and counsellors throughout the country so that they can immediately begin counselling students interested in the program, Dr. Haber said.
