The following message was sent to the Institute community on Friday.

To the members of the Monterey Institute community,

At its meeting this morning, the Board of Trustees of the Monterey Institute of International Studies unanimously approved the following resolution regarding reorganization of the academic administration.

RESOLVED, the Board of Trustees approves the following academic administrative reorganization, effective Academic Year 2009/2010:

*  The Graduate School of International Policy Studies and Fisher Graduate School of International Business will become a single Graduate School of International Policy and Management.

*  The Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation and the Graduate School of Language and Educational Linguistics will become a single Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation, and Language Education.

In taking this action, the Board gave careful consideration to the thoughtful and constructive input it has received from the community.

Our intention in approving this reorganization is to reaffirm the commitment of the Board and the administration to pursue academic excellence as we look toward the process of reaccreditation by NEASC and AACSB.  We believe that the synergies within the new structure will enhance our programs and make the Institute a truly distinctive leader in global education.

As we proceed to develop the details within this basic organizational framework, there are many decisions to be made. We value the engagement of the whole Institute community in a collaborative and appreciative process, to be announced in a timely manner. 

William H Kieffer III, Chair of the Board of Trustees

Clara Yu, President

Sunder Ramaswamy, President Designate
