Advisory Board

Advisory Board

Our advisors are a group of inspiring and outstanding artists and academics, who are firm believers in the importance of travelling to enhance an individual's vision of the world. Through them we are able to maintain a direct connection with current issues being discussed in American colleges and to maintain the highest academic standards in what we offer to our students studying abroad.

The Advisory Board is committed to monitoring and evaluating the Siena School with a focus on:

  • maintaining high academic standards;
  • strengthening and expanding the relationship between the Siena School, American liberal arts colleges and European universities;  
  • creating service-learning opportunities at the local level to promote direct American engagement in the Italian community, and mutual cultural understanding.
