The Monterey Institute is home to thousands of individual stories of international engagement and impact — learn more about them here.
The Monterey Institute of International Studies is a vibrant campus community with an abundance of global connections and interesting stories to tell. Our students teach and learn in multiple languages and put their graduate professional education to work all over the world in contexts ranging from economic development to language education to international business to nuclear nonproliferation to conference interpretation to global environmental initiatives. You can find student stories sprinkled across this site and in our MIIS Spotlight. Some of those stories are also told in our Communiqué newsletter, and in our news releases.
