Provost signs new partnership with Monterey Institute
Provost Dean de la Motte has announced the signing of a new memorandum of understanding with the Monterey Institute for International Studies (MIIS), a graduate school of Middlebury College located in Monterey, Calif.
This overarching agreement, signed by de la Motte and his counterpart at the MIIS, Dr. Amy Sands, provides a framework for the joint development of short-term programs and research activities, as well as 4+1 articulation agreements in specific fields, whereby Salve Regina undergraduates could obtain advanced standing in MIIS graduate programs, all of which focus on international policy and education.
The two institutions signed an initial agreement in 2011, paving the way for Salve Regina to host the MIIS’s Intensive College English program for international students preparing to attend colleges and universities in the United States.
“We are enormously pleased to have in place a framework for further cooperation with the Monterey Institute,” de la Motte said. “MIIS is known through the world for its innovative approach to international education, especially in the areas of international public policy, environmental policy, and non-proliferation and terrorism. We look forward to developing partnerships in areas of common interest, as Salve Regina continues its comprehensive efforts at internationalization.”
