    The Summer Institute of Politics at Salve Regina's Pell Center is a weeklong residential program that offers promising high school students the opportunity to grapple with the great challenges facing the United States, the international community, and even your hometown. Along the way, you will learn more about yourself, develop your own style of personal leadership and get a flavor for what it means to live and study on a college campus.

    We're going to work hard and take some time to enjoy Newport too. We will: Explore the contours of the American political system. Develop an understanding of interest groups. Unpack political polarization. Consider what the politics of inclusion really means. Grapple with wars in Ukraine and the Middle East. Discuss the role of the press in a democracy and the challenge of disinformation. Examine major policy issues like immigration, climate change, police reform and more. You are eligible to participate in this program if you are preparing for your junior or senior year of high school. There are no prerequisite course requirements, but it is expected that if you are applying for this program, you have a strong interest in American politics, domestic or international policies and personal development.
