International Interviews

The International Interviews Program was created as a means of bringing quick, current information to the student body. When guest speakers come to the College, members of the interview staff interview them and then publish the interviews. This is a relatively new publication, but already we have had the opportunity to interview international relations scholars such as John Mearsheimer and Kenneth Waltz. We have also had the opportunity to interview public officials such as ambassadors Pickering and Hussain. 

The International Interviews Committee interviews and participates in the publication of the interviews. To find out more about or become a member of this committee, email the Monitor at [[e|monitor]].
