What happens to Peace Corps
volunteers as they face the dif-t
ficulties and frustrations of work-
ing in underdeveloped nations?
This summer Assistant Prof.f
Raphael Ezekiel of the Univer-E
sity's psychology department and
Prof. M. Brewster Smith of thei
University of California inter-
viewed secondary school teachersJ
who served two years in Ghana
as Peace Corps volunteers.z
This research was part of ar
major international study Smithx
conducted for the Peace Corps. r
Ezekiel and Smith found outt
that most of the teachers with
whom they talked "performed
their jobs with a considerable de-t
gree of effort, commitment and
competence." (It was also dis-
covered that the competence was
related to the individual volun-
teer's readiness to commit him-
self to demanding tasks and to
how he viewed his personal fu-
ture.)
Smith noted that as the volun-
teers' stay lengthened, they be-
came "more tough-minded and
realistic, more autonomous and
independent of authority, and
much more concerned with the
plight of the American Nearo."
Ezekiel says that the idealism
and good educational backgrounds
of the volunteers does not neces-
sarily lead to competence in a
pioneering venture overseas. "Just
such high expectations may go
sour in some settings, individuals
may become disappointed and dis-
affected, rather than zealous and
committed."
In a recent paper to the Ameri-
can Psychological Association,
Ezekiel attempted to explain why
members became disaffected. "It
is quite possible that the volun-
teers experienced a growth that
exceeded what would be likely in
a less exotic setting."

He added that in many respects Ezekiel also commented on con-
