The Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication (SIIC) has a 37-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 27 under the auspices of the Intercultural Communication Institute in Portland, Oregon, SIIC has become a creative—and sometimes downright playful—community of intercultural scholars and practitioners from many cultures that meet each year to renew their energies and commitments. Additional information can be found here, or in the 2013 SIIC Brochure (pdf).
ICI is pleased to be able to offer partial scholarships for SIIC 2013.
We also have the SIIC Installment Plan (SIP) available.
If you have a fascination with working across cultures, whether domestically or globally, we are pleased to offer you a distinctive Master of Arts degree in Intercultural Relations. Designed to prepare you for a stimulating career or to increase your skills in an existing job, our program offers a unique curriculum in a creative format for busy interculturalists.
The Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI) offers an Intercultural Certificate Program with three certificate levels based on attendance at ICI’s Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication (SIIC). Each level of certification acknowledges exposure to state-of-the-art theory and practice, knowledge of intercultural practices, and growth as an intercultural professional. These certificates represent participation in the Summer Institute and possibly in other learning activities connected to the ICI network. Finally, the certificates reflect a commitment to the professional standards maintained by ICI trainers and faculty.
The Intercultural Communication Institute is pleased to announce partnerships with multiple organizations, providing access to a variety of tools designed for teaching and training, team building, professional development, and to assess and develop intercultural competencies.

We should never denigrate any other culture but rather help people to understand the relationship between their own culture and the dominant culture. When you understand another culture or language, it does not mean that you have to lose your own culture.
