Dear Members of the MIIS Community:

We are now just three weeks from one of the most exciting times of the year –
commencement.  This event represents the culmination of years of work and
study for hundreds of our students, and is a chance for family members and
guests to celebrate with us this momentous time in our students’ lives.

This year’s spring commencement will include all of the customary celebrations
– the garden party reception on Friday, May 15, the commencement ceremony
itself on Saturday, May 16, and the commencement reception afterwards.  In
addition, the commencement ceremony will include my formal inauguration as
president of the Institute.

The decision to join the two events offers a wonderful opportunity to showcase
the amazing work our students and faculty are doing both locally and around
the globe for a wide audience encompassing the campus community, our
Board of Trustees, and our friends and supporters.  The day before
commencement, on May 15 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, we will convene an
inaugural symposium titled “Being The Solution: Building Leadership From
Monterey To Mumbai,” which will feature sessions and stations spotlighting a
variety of student and faculty projects, accomplishments, and disciplines.  In
that way, the symposium will provide rich context for family members and
guests in particular to understand the scope and significance of our graduating
students’ achievements.  All MIIS community members – students, family
members and guests, alumni, faculty and staff — are invited to attend the
symposium.

The schedule of events for May 15-16 is as follows:

Friday, May 15

1:00 pm – 5:00 pm   Inauguration Symposium
Irvine Auditorium
(Agenda: commencement-inauguration-symposium-agenda)

5:00 pm – 7:00 pm   Graduation Garden Party
Holland Center Courtyard
Saturday, May 16

1:00 pm – 3:30 pm   Commencement and Inauguration
Colton Hall Lawn

3:30 pm – 5:30 pm   Commencement Reception
Samson Student Center

I look forward to sharing with you two days of celebration of the Institute, our
important mission, and the students who are our reason for being here.

Best regards,
Sunder

Congratulations to Joyce Laker, MAIPS, for being selected by her fellow December graduates as their student Commencement speaker!  This was a very competitive process with qualified candidates.  We look forward to hearing Joyce’s speech on December 14th.
