BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — The SIT Graduate Institute is expanding its international education program and scaling down operations in Vermont.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the institute will offer more study abroad programming along with new master’s degrees. SIT president Sophia Howlett says the shift reflects a growing global market. Howlett says the school is offering “shorter, more cost-effective” programs around the world.
Howlett says the school will eliminate about 30 positions at the Brattleboro campus. She says some employees will be able to transition to different roles. The Brattleboro campus will remain as headquarters for the institute.
SIT is using a new global master’s degree format. Officials say the school is launching a program in global climate change. Degrees in social justice are being developed, as well.
