Matt Ward and Justine Amos creating our mural.
At the beginning of the spring semester, the Tulane Peace Corps Programs students decided to create a mural for our school that represents how the Peace Corps contributes to Tulane. Masters International student Matt Ward created the design for the mural.
Matt stated “I decided to use the flag to represent our coming from America, and the doves to represent the Peace Corps and the journey we make from New Orleans to all over the world.” Masters International student Alyssa Young helped sketch the mural onto the wall and Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Justine Amos (Swaziland, 2007-2010) along with creator Matt Ward helped to paint the design.

According to Matt, “this mural shows people that students from our program come full circle, from New Orleans to our posts overseas, and then we bring that experience home to New Orleans, and to Tulane.”
You can view the Peace Corps mural in the stairwell between the 11th and 12th floors.
