08.25.08: The IPSS X-perience

The last few weeks of August are a time when the new student class – originating from locations across the globe – inundates the Monterey Institute campus…

But before this occurs, a veteran group of MIIS students – participants from the six-month, intensive International Professional Service Semester program – come home from far and wide, from Geneva, Vienna, Beijing, New York, and Washington DC. They return to us from prestigious organizations such as The United Nations, World Bank, and World Trade Organization, to share their practiced knowledge. On August 19th and 20th, these students convened in the McGowan Building to discuss the results of their field experiences and research at the 2008 IPSS Capstone Conference and Closing Ceremony: two days of panel presentations entitled “Effecting Change: Proactive Leadership in International Policy!”
