Flyers: How to start a club flyer

Where in the world is?

As many of you know, a series of office moves occurred over the summer, to concentrate the majority of faculty in McCone, the IIRC, and/or Casa Fuente.  

Please see this series of maps for the McCone and IIRC buildings and portions of Casa Fuente and McGowan that show where faculty and staff affected by the move are now located. 

In some cases, entire departments were moved, such as the Intensive & Custom Language Programs (main office now located in Suite 103 of the McGowan Building) and the Advancement Office (now located in Suite 300 of the McGowan Building).

Please note that staff in many other buildings on campus were not affected by the moves and as a result, are not included in the attached document.

Message from AFS Volunteer Roy Michaels:

Attached you will find the Sending Coordinator position which the AFS Steinbeck Coast currently has open. The job can be shared by two individuals which has been done in the past. Sometimes sharing a role can make the experience more enjoyable. I had the Sending Coordinator position for several years and I’d be more than willing to meet with a grad student or employee at MIIS to help with any questions and training.

Each year AFS has a training gathering and invites coordinators from throughout the United States to attend. In past years we’ve met in Portland, OR, Chicago, IL.,  St. Louis, MO, and Baltimore, MD. AFS pays all expenses to attend.

All MIIS Students,Exchange email accounts are now available to all students registered for the Spring 2009 semester.

You will soon receive an email, through your FirstClass account, from the MIIS Helpdesk containing your new Banner ID and activation instructions.

You may begin using your account immediately following activation. Please activate your new Exchange email account for use over the summer months so that you do not experience downtime in email service when you return to school this fall.

Students should begin using their Exchange accounts over the summer and should only use the new Exchange (Outlook Web) directory to look up faculty email addresses.

These new Exchange email accounts will replace the current FirstClass email accounts, which will become inactive September 15th, 2009. After this date, you will still be able to access FirstClass and retrieve archived messages, but no new outside mail will be delivered to FirstClass.

After September 15th, all email sent to your @miis.edu address (FirstClass) will be delivered directly to your Exchange email account.

You should temporarily set up forwarding on your FirstClass email account to your new Exchange account, so that you can receive mail from both @miis.edu and @exchange.miis.edu using your Exchange account during the summer.

Students graduating this spring will continue to have access to their new Exchange email accounts for a period of 6 months, which matches Middlebury’s retention policy for graduating students. — If you have any questions once you receive your Banner ID, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 831-647-6512 or by email at [ mailto:helpdesk-miis@exchange.miis.edu ]helpdesk-miis@exchange.miis.edu.

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

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

1:00 pm – 5:00 pm   Inauguration Symposium
