Faculty-Led Partner Testimonials
SRISA has partnered with over sixty institutions and agencies throughout the USA and Mexico and every year SRISA hosts over 35 visiting Faculty-Led programs from across the world at its Florence campus.
Thanks to one of my students who spent a fall semester at SRISA, the VCU Fashion in Florence Program was created. She told me how wonderful her experience was and thought that a summer program would be a wonderful way to give more students the opportunity to experience the beautiful city of Florence and work with the fantastic team at SRISA. Our program has run interrupted since 2008 as both a one month and two month program. The faculty and staff at SRISA are incredible to work with and eager to help in any way to make our programs successful.
Teaching students from my home university, Indiana University South Bend, in Florence with SRISA has been an amazing experience. The students always have a memorable trip of a lifetime. And SRISA makes the experience easy for me. I teach and enjoy the atmosphere in Italy and I know that the staff at SRISA is always there to help answer questions and resolve any issue or concern. After four trips to Italy, I feel a close friendship with everyone at SRISA.
I enjoy a long and successful collaboration with SRISA for our study abroad printmaking courses, enabling our students to blend in and benefit from SRISA’s experience, logistics, and organization. The studios are beautiful and open, housing is convenient and in interesting locations, and the city of Florence of course is unsurpassed! Each student has an amazing experience, and my teaching has interaction and growth because of this opportunity.
