The 8th Annual Vermont Vision for a Multicultural Future Conference will take place Thursday and Friday, November 7-8, 2018, in the Stephen and Nita Lowey International Center at the School for International Training in Brattleboro, VT.
School for International Training
School for International Training prepares students from across the globe to be effective leaders, professionals, and citizens. SIT’s graduate and professional development programs are rooted in the experiential education model, where learning occurs at the nexus of theory and practice. Students are trained to become highly skilled practitioners who have a commanding knowledge of the theoretical basis of their profession; experience in the field; and an awareness of their own capabilities, values, and ethics.
Throughout its five-decade history SIT has delivered innovative graduate programs in the areas of peace and conflict transformation, socially responsible management, sustainable development, international education, and teacher preparation. In the late 1960s, SIT introduced programs in teaching English, and in 1971, the school awarded its first master’s degree for the Program in Intercultural Management. The 1970s and 1980s saw a further evolution of programs offered, and the 1990s were marked by an expansion of facilities on SIT’s Brattleboro, Vermont, campus. In 2007, SIT introduced an online option for its MA in international education, and in 2011, it launched an MA in sustainable development in Washington, DC.
Today, SIT continues to adapt to a changing world and the ever-evolving needs of its students by developing innovative full-time, face-to-face, global master’s degree programs. It remains as committed as ever to the principles of social justice, intercultural communication, and experiential learning.
