What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 90 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.

World Learning congratulates SIT Graduate Institute’s class of 2015, a group of exceptional individuals poised to use their skills and passion to make positive contributions to communities around the world.
President and CEO Donald Steinberg, Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost John Lucas, Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Dean of SIT Graduate Institute Daniel Cantor Yalowitz, Dean of Student Affairs Michael Smallis, Professors Susan Barduhn and Paula Green, and Associate Professor Karen Stromgren Blanchard presented the graduates with their diplomas on May 23 at the Latchis Theater in Brattleboro. The ceremony honored more than 200 graduates who earned master’s degrees or certificates in programs ranging from international education to sustainable development in the past year.
The keynote address was delivered by Curtiss Reed, Jr., executive director of Vermont Partnerships for Fairness and Diversity, which provides training and coaching on inclusion, bias, and equity to state agency, municipal, institutional, and business clients as well as community organizations across Vermont. He challenged the graduates to be the “unexpected voice of social justice” and to seek to understand others in order to treat them “the way they want to be treated” to help create a more inclusive and equitable world.
