Program Description:
The Siena School for Liberal Arts was founded in November 2004 by the Executive Director, Miriam Grottanelli de Santi with the intent of providing a transformational experience in Italy for students through in-depth academic courses and projects, by engaging with the Italian culture by immersing students in the language and in the city of Siena, through volunteer opportunities, and projects that encourage students to explore and experience Italian culture first-hand.  

The program is an independent Italian company affiliated with the University of Siena and employs many of their faculty as professors and researchers through the courses, projects, conferences and events held annually.  

The program has an Advisory Board comprised of member institutions that meet annually and guide the program in terms of maintaining high academic standards, discussing further development within the US and in Europe, creating engaging service and volunteer opportunities that allow for cross-cultural experiences for faculty and students, and the development of future international initiatives for the Siena School.

Beginning in fall 2009 Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona (NAU) will serve as the School of Record for the Siena School of Liberal Arts and will issue transcripts for all students requesting a transcript from a US institution.

The Siena School has arranged several affiliation agreements with institutions throughout the United States.
