What is SIIC?

Our life's work is building bridges among cultural differences, softening barriers to living life with cultural others, and probing the mysteries of unknown places and peoples. We do so not only to teach more wisely, train more effectively, and manage more appropriately, but also sometimes for the sheer pleasure of experiencing differences.

 

The Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication (SIIC) has a 40-year history of providing professional development for people who believe that this work matters. During its first ten years at Stanford University, and for the last 30 under the auspices of the Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI) in Portland, Oregon, SIIC has become a creative - and sometimes downright playful - community of intercultural scholars and practitioners from many cultures that meets each year to renew their energies and commitments.
