HEALTH, SAFETY & WELL-BEING

SIT places the highest priority on the health, safety, and well-being of all students. The Office of Student Health, Safety, and Well-Being provides leadership and vision in the areas of health services, crisis management, counseling, housing, safety and security, equity and diversity, community standards, and disability support.

  • Counseling & Mental Health

    The cultural adjustment process on study abroad programs requires psychological flexibility in the face of different customs, beliefs, and living conditions. Students who are currently managing a mental health condition are encouraged to discuss any concerns with their health professional and/or the Student Affairs staff at SIT Study Abroad. SIT’s health review process is designed to support students in making the safest and most reasonable choices regarding their mental health.

  • Social Identity

    SIT is committed to better understanding the global nuances of diversity, inclusion, and equity. We recognize that every individual has multiple social identities that affect our experiences in profound ways. SIT prioritizes having a truly diverse community of students and staff that work toward inclusion that centers voices and experiences of historically marginalized groups. We also recognize that the privilege and power ascribed to our identities in one context may be different in another.
