Robert Rogowsky

Professor in International Policy Studies

I am passionate about being alive.  It was once said, "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive." I am passionate about being truly alive and sharing it with those I am fortunate enough to meet.

‪I love being a professor at MIIS because it helps me feel alive.  Innovative administrators, remarkable faculty, and energized students working as a team makes MIIS percolate with inquisitive and creative energy.  It is a vibrant academic community that blends learning with meaningful application and implementation. I am thrilled to be part of it.
