Opening Paragraph

The annual Fall Forum is both organized and interpreted by our Interpretation students.

The Fall Forum provides the MIIS community with a setting for discussion of relevant issues of our time. This exciting event offers our second-year interpretation students the unique opportunity to perform consecutive interpretation in a professional environment; it also gives students in other academic programs the chance to see interpreters at work and to consider how they might work effectively with an interpreter.
