SIT announces new global podcast series

BRATTLEBORO — 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 and its Washington, D.C., Center, and academic directors and faculty from nearly 80 Study Abroad programs.

SIT's experts also include graduate students from around the world. Many have seen conflict or humanitarian crisis up close, and others have worked in non-governmental organizations all over the globe. Listeners will hear from people like SIT President Sophia Howlett, Global Youth Development and Leadership program chair John Ungerleider, and SIT Ecuador Academic Director Fabian Espinosa, as well as students like Fadia Thabet, who won a U.S. State Department International Women of Courage Award for her work helping children caught up in brutal conflict in Yemen.

The first four episodes are now available at SIT's website.

The host of On SITe is SIT 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.
