New MIIS President on school's mission and future

Monterey, CA – The Defense Language Institute and Naval Postgraduate School get all the headlines. California State University Monterey Bay has the most students. So the Monterey Institute of International Studies often gets overlooked. The 750-student graduate school in downtown Monterey focuses on expanding understanding across cultures to avoid international conflicts. MIIS signed an affiliation agreement with Vermont's Middlebury College last December, and longtime Middlebury Professor Clara Yu will be inaugurated as MIIS President on Saturday.

In an extended interview, much of which did not make it on the air due to time constraints, Dr. Yu speaks with KAZU's Ben Adler.
