In two episodes per month, SIT’s new On SITe podcast offers insights on global issues from SIT experts. Those experts include faculty and staff from SIT Graduate Institute’s campus in Brattleboro, Vermont and our Washington DC Center, and academic directors and faculty from nearly 80 Study Abroad programs. SIT’s experts also include graduate students, who hail from all over the world. Many have seen conflict or humanitarian crisis up close, and others have worked in non-governmental organizations all over the globe.
You’ll hear from people like SIT president Sophia Howlett, Global Youth Development and Leadership program chair John Ungerleider, and SIT Ecuador Academic Director Fabian Espinosa (pictured), but also from students like Fadia Thabet, who won a State Department International Women of Courage Award for her work helping children caught up in brutal conflict in Yemen.
The first five episodes are available below. Hosts for On SITe include SIT Communications Director Kate Casa and Communications Specialist James Heflin. Podcasts are recorded at SIT’s Brattleboro campus. On SITe’s theme music is by Western Massachusetts percussionist Tony Vacca, and was recorded live at SIT’s 2017 commencement.
