A Glance into the MIIS Community…

Meet the MIIS Facebook Team

You may take it for granted that everything is on Facebook these days but in fact you’ll find that MIIS is pretty unusual in its efforts to use Facebook and other new technology to meet its students wherever they are. It doesn’t happen by itself – we have a great group of students that helped launch our Facebook presence last year and keep improving it day by day. From the best calendar of MIIS events to the best place for incoming students to get the inside scoop these are the people who make it happen – give them a little love when you see them around!!

DongYoung Shin:

DongYoung graduated in June with an M.A. in International Environmental Policy. She is looking for the perfect non-profit think tank. In the meantime she is making it rain grant money for the Private Reserves Network – an NGO coordinating individuals and organizations interested in private conservation founded by MIIS graduates Nat Miller, Brooks Bonner and Alan Grundy.      


Jane Mazur:

Jane also graduated in June with an MA in Translation and Localization Management. She has passed both of her two Translation Professional Exams for translation from English to Russian and Russian to English – that ain’t easy! She plans to work in the San Francisco Bay Area concentrating on localization and Russian language.  
Thanks Jane and DongYoung – and good luck!
(This wouldn’t have happened without you!)


Becky is in her 2nd year of a MA in International Policy Studies with a specialization in conflict resolution. She has taken the torch from Jane and DongYoung and one look at the discussion boards will tell you that she’s on top of her stuff! You have Becky to thank for the awesome new group for incoming students, but you’ll have to do it on an odd schedule – she’ll be checking in from London and various points throughout the Middle East for the rest of the summer.      

Chris Krauskopf:

Chris is in his 2nd year of an MBA at MIIS Fisher School of International Business. People (mainly Jill Stoffers and Mary Linberger) tell him that he is supposed to think of ways that MIIS can reach it’s community through emerging social networks – it’s pretty good work but mostly he likes meeting friends from all over the world – on Facebook and in person.  
If you like MIIS being on Facebook then let us know – we’ll do our best to make it better and we’re happy to put you to work!!!
