At ISI Florence classes are taught by international faculty members with a demonstrated passion for their subject. The Institute requires that all professors hold a PhD or its equivalent in their given fields, as well as maintain a steady, vigorous presence in academia through publications, conferences, and active participation in the research and practical application of their studies. ISI Florence faculty members are devoted to challenging students in all aspects of their study abroad experience, aiming to foster a new understanding of international travel, cultural integration, and personal growth.
