In February, we announced the appointment of Tsuneo Akaha to the position of M2 Academic Programs Coordinator.  We are now pleased to announce that Tsuneo has assembled the M2 Program Committee, which includes members of the academic administration and faculty representing key areas of potential synergy between the Monterey Institute and Middlebury’s various programs.

The members of the M2 Program Committee are:

Tsuneo Akaha, GSIPM faculty in International Policy Studies; coordinator
Amy Sands, Provost
Yuwei Shi, GSIPM faculty in International Business and dean designate
Renee Jourdenais, dean, GSLEL; dean designate, GSTILE
Anna Vassilieva, GSTILE faculty in Language Studies
Jeff Langholz, GSIPM faculty in Environmental Studies
Fernando De Paolis, GSIPM faculty in International Policy Studies
John Balcom, GSTILE faculty in Translation and Interpretation
Patricia Lewis, deputy director, JMCNS

The M2 Program Committee will initially focus on program opportunities that build on established strengths at both institutions, including languages and linguistics, international policy and management, and international environmental policy.  We thank them for their willingness to undertake this important work.

We are looking forward to a visit from the Middlebury M2 Program Committee in early April, to meet their Monterey counterparts and begin to get to know our programs and faculty.  This is the first step in building a strong integrated academic community that we believe will result in exciting new opportunities for our students, faculty, and staff.
