Program Assessment

SIT staff care deeply about innovation and excellence, extending to all points of engagement with students, their parents or guardians, and faculty and staff at our partner schools. Regular assessment encompasses all areas of the institution.

The purpose of SIT’s Academic Affairs Committee is to oversee the academic affairs of SIT. The committee is composed of faculty from SIT Graduate Institute and SIT Study Abroad. It reviews all curricular proposals, including changes to credit hours, course and program titles, and new program development. The committee meets monthly.

An annual assessment summit is conducted under the guidance of the provost and vice provost, with academic deans, Student Affairs, Enrollment Services, and Administration and Assessment, to evaluate reports from the different regions. Discussions highlight areas of particular success and improvements, and identifies where investment or further attention is necessary.


SIT is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the New England Association should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution.

Student Evaluations

At the end of each SIT Study Abroad program, all students are required to complete an anonymous online evaluation. Student evaluations address critical topics including pre-departure material and assistance, orientation, homestays, course content, and overall academic quality.

Student evaluations have long been an important component of SIT’s program assessment process. Student feedback helps us identify program strengths and weaknesses in order to maintain high-quality academic programs. Evaluations can also help students, faculty, and study abroad advisors identify programs well suited to a particular student’s academic objectives and personal interests.

Please keep in mind that programs develop and change over time to reflect updated curricula and evolving realities in the program location. Individual experience can be shaped by a number of factors, including group dynamics and student interest and initiative.
