When Japan was hit with a major earthquake and tsunami in mid-March, the Monterey Institute’s tight-knit international campus community banded together immediately in search of ways to help those affected. Led by a group of Japanese-American faculty, staff and students, the community mobilized to raise funds for the Japan Society of Northern California’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Faculty and students set up donation tables at campus events and the weekly farmer’s market in downtown Monterey.
Hundreds of MIIS community members, students, faculty, staff and alumni celebrated the diversity of the Monterey Institute campus on April 16 through the sharing of international cuisine, traditions and entertainment at the Institute’s 24th annual International Bazaar. The event kicked off at 12 noon with a performance by the local Taiko drumming troupe, Shinso Mugen Daiko.
Experts at the Monterey Institute of International Studies and its James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) have been in high demand by the local, national and international media in recent days as the earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear crisis in Japan have unfolded.
