Kansas City, MO USA – November 2, 2010 - People to People International (PTPI) is proud to announce the newest addition to its expanding chapter network.
PTPI’s Indiana University at South Bend University Chapter was chartered on November 2, 2010.

PTPI University Chapters are year-round, membership-based organizations which give college students an opportunity to learn leadership skills, professional and global experience, as well as promote peace and understanding on campus and in the community. Chapters generally focus on learning about other countries and cultures and participating in various humanitarian efforts. The end result is a group of young leaders who have increased global awareness and who also work to make a positive difference in the world. There are more than 200 PTPI chapters worldwide with thousands of members committed to creating Peace through Understanding.
PTPI always welcomes new members to its chapter network in addition to groups of students who would like to join our chapter program.
