SIT welcomes 12 students to its December Capstone Seminar on the Brattleboro campus from Monday, Dec. 10 through Friday, Dec. 15. The capstone presentation and paper is the culmination of every SIT degree program, the demonstration of students’ integration of theory and practice in their field.
Current capstone students are earning degrees in Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding, International Education, Sustainable Development, and Intercultural Service, Leadership, and Management. Students will present on a wide range of topics, from sustainability in the cocoa supply chain to an analysis of social justice and transformative learning in English language curriculum design and a study of post-conflict reconciliation initiatives in Rwanda.
Leading the week-long seminar are Bruce W. Dayton, Associate Professor and Chair of the Peace and Justice Leadership master’s degree program, and Sora Friedman, Professor and Chair of the International Education master’s program. A closing ceremony will be held in Rotch 108/109 on Friday, Dec. 14 from 1:30 p.m. through 3 p.m. Capstone Seminar events are free and open to the public.
