School for International Training was officially established in 1964. However, its roots date back to 1932 when Dr. Donald Watt founded The Experiment in International Living, which aims to improve understanding across cultures and nations by sending US students abroad to live with families in their communities in order to expand their worldviews.
SIT develops our programs within a framework of the most Critical Global Issues of the day so that the next generation of leaders has the expertise and intercultural understanding they need to engage all identities, perspectives, and cultures with respectful, enduring, and meaningful responses.
SIT fulfills its mission by offering transformative reflective learning and research experiences that prepare agents of change to work across cultures and communities for the mutual benefit of all.
SIT offers a variety of services to help students explore their career options, develop their professional networks, build their job seeker skills, and connect them with internship and job opportunities.
SIT Graduate Institute places the highest priority on the health, safety, and security of all our students. We aim to help all students achieve their academic potential by providing a supportive, diverse, and community-focused learning environment.
