The Student Council serves as the governing body for all students enrolled at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) at Monterey. We act as a voice for the student body in communication with faculty and staff and are composed of students from all degree programs.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Student Council is to represent and address the needs and interests of the student body. It strives to facilitate communication and interaction between the Monterey Institute students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community, and shall sponsor various educational and social activities, which will further this purpose.
