Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

I have met the three new Iraq students and they are most impressive!

I recruited in Iraq two years ago as a member of the first US university group to go there and,even though the first three students here are men, we were assured by the very impressive director of the program, Dr. Humadi, that women would be equally represented in the program. I understand that there are more Iraqui students in the pipeline.

Incidentally, I was driven in a tank-like vehicle from the airport to Baghdad and was required to wear a bullet-proff vest, which is to say that recruiting in Iraq is different from rcruiting in Iowa!
