Welcome to the first edition of SIT Worldview, a newsletter for you – our partners – highlighting some of the many exciting things happening at SIT. Each month, we’ll feature students’ experiences on SIT programs around the world, their accomplishments after they return home, and the impressive work our faculty and program staff are doing to make SIT "not your ordinary study abroad.” I hope you’ll also click on the links to our blog, podcasts, and videos for even more great news and information. Thanks for your continued partnership, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or comments.
