Global Impact of MIIS Highlighted in Over One Hundred Stories
December 23, 2010
The MIIS Around the World stories campaign started a year ago as an attempt to collect first-person narratives from members the MIIS community that illustrate the global impact of the Institute. One hundred and twenty students, alumni, faculty and staff members have already submitted their stories. The submissions range from tales about international experiences that brought students to MIIS, to funny anecdotes about attempts to communicate in a new language, to the sharing of life-changing moments.
All stories are welcome whether they are in written form, graphic accounts or short videos. For those interested in contributing a story, the MIIS Stories Campaign page on the site offers both basic guidelines and additional advice for potential storytellers.
A few examples of stories posted this fall include an inspiring tale of international cooperation in development: “Robert McCleery: Building Bridges in Development through MIIS Connection” and a personal account of just how circuitous the road to launching the ideal career can be: “Emily Sloane: Working on Food Security in Southern Sudan.”
