17 students from the Monterey Institute are training and preparing to head off around the world as part of the International Professional Service Semester (IPSS) program.
As participants in IPSS, they will be working as junior professional staff members for 6 months with international organizations like the UN and the U.S State Department. The students will also receive credits toward their degree for completing an academic project related to their job assignment.
For Monterey Institute students, the IPSS experience is an invaluable stepping stone on the path to their future careers.
