MIIS Students Focus on Professional Development During Winter Term

For most Monterey Institute students, the short winter term in January is a great opportunity to take what they have been learning in the classroom and either develop practical skills through intense practicum courses, or go out into the real world and take their classroom lessons to the field.

Nüket Kardam: Connecting Students to the Monterey Community through Grassroots Leadership

This Symposium was organized by my students, and many grassroots leaders and some academics who work in the local Monterey area were invited to the Symposium.

Sara Ferree: Sparking Grassroots Development from San Francisco to Women's Organizations Worldwide

I am really lucky to have a job and even more lucky to have one in the field I wanted to work in, doing the work I enjoy in a way that follows my values.

After earning an undergraduate degree in economics, I spent two years in Jamaica with the Peace Corps. When I returned to the U.S. in 2005, I worked for a non-profit that was not internationally focused. While the experience was worthwhile, I felt a desire to get back into international development work.
