The organization that would lead to the founding of SIT, and to the establishment of World Learning, was originally founded in 1932, as The Experiment in International Living. In the early 1960s, Sargent Shriver, the first director of the Peace Corps and an alumnus of The Experiment in International Living, called on The Experiment to conduct orientation and training for the earliest Peace Corps Volunteers. These orientation and training activities gradually led to the establishment of an academic institution, the School for International Training (SIT), in 1964. SIT was founded by The Experiment's first president, Gordon Boyce, and executive vice president, John Wallace. Today John Wallace’s vision lives on at SIT Graduate Institute in Brattleboro, VT, and Washington, DC.
SIT offers master's degrees and graduate-level certificates, several of which can be earned online.
