Digital Media Commons Mission
The mission of the Digital Media Commons (DMC) is to connect the Monterey Institute of International Studies to the world through digital media. The Digital Media Commons provides opportunities for students, faculty and staff to develop, produce and distribute digital media projects that can document achievements, strengthen professional connections, and raise the Institute’s visibility.
