The torch has now been officially passed to our new president, Sunder Ramaswamy! While he has not quite unpacked all his boxes in the president’s office, he is settled in his new home in Monterey with his wife, Varna, and son, Srivats, and they are ready to “be the solution” with all of us at MIIS.

We’re also joined today by Jason Warburg, our new Executive Director of Communications.  Jason comes to us from the Sacramento area, where his career has included communications and public relations for EDFUND, a non-profit organization that administers student loan programs in California. Jason also served as the legislative director and senior policy and communications advisor for California’s Lieutenant Governor for a number of years. He has an M.S. in Foreign Service from Georgetown, and a B.A. in Political Science from UC Davis.

Last, but far from least, we welcome some special visitors from Middlebury:

•    President Ron Liebowitz, his wife, Jessica, and their three children will be with us for the next two weeks, so that Ron can engage in some west coast development activities and attend the MIIS Board meeting.
•    MIIS Trustee and Middlebury Professor Russ Leng has returned, by popular demand, to teach his winter term course on War.
•    Mike Roy, Middlebury’s new Dean of Library and Information Services, will be on campus next week (January 12 and 13), learning about our library and technology resources and exploring possibilities for collaboration and integration.
