WORLD LEARNING INC. FAMILY

Join Us!

The World Learning family began in 1932 when sociologist Dr. Donald Watt launched our flagship program, The Experiment in International Living. This led to the establishment of World Learning, a global development and exchange nonprofit, and School for International Training (SIT), which includes SIT Graduate Institute, SIT Study Abroad, International Honors Program (IHP), and more.

Inspired by the early principles of The Experiment, all three branches are built on the enduring values of community, intercultural understanding, social inclusion and justice, and sustainability.
 
In the sweep of nine decades, we have grown and evolved, changed and innovated to address the critical needs and conversations of our times. This year, we invite you to join us on this journey as we honor our 90th anniversary. We are One World, Learning together.
