The Center for Italian Culture (CIC) at Fitchburg State University celebrated more than 20 years of supporting scholarships and programming with a fundraising gala at the Fitchburg Art Museum on Saturday, June 11.

The CIC, founded with a major gift by the late Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio of Fitchburg State’s Class of 1938, has been a fixture on the university campus for over 20 years. Throughout its history, the center has sponsored programs that celebrate Italian contributions to Western civilization and supported study abroad scholarships that let university students and faculty explore the wider world.

Students and Faculty Studying Abroad this Summer

Posted by Matthew Bruun on May 31, 2022 at 10:49 AM

Fitchburg State students are seeing the world this summer, taking part in faculty-led programs to other continents while earning university credits.

Among the courses and destinations this su

mmer are peace studies in Ireland, communications in Greece, and culture and history courses in Verona, Italy. 

The journeys were made possible through the Global Ambassador and Center for Italian Culture Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Scholarship programs, which bring international travel within reach. 

This summer, students will also be traveling

 to Spain to study education, and another group will go to Costa Rica to study tropical ecology. Domestic travel is also on the menu, with members of the game design program traveling to Los Angeles and Hawaii this summer (with a trip to Japan planned for 2023).
