Ten rising juniors and seniors at Salve Regina have been selected as fellows for the Nuala Pell Leadership Program for 2020-2021. This innovative leadership development program is run by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy is named in honor of the wife of U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell.
The program facilitates leadership development for the twenty-first century through monthly meetings where students will explore leadership theory, ethics, evolution of public issues and what it takes to be a leader in the public sector. This cohort will also travel to Washington, D.C., in the spring of 2021 to meet with Congressional leaders, policy makers and others.
“I’m so excited to see what this new group discovers. It’s a new day, and it needs a new kind of leadership—built on the combination of empathy and information,” said Martha McCann Rose, program director.
“The impulse to serve others is as special and profound today as at any time in American history,” said Jim Ludes, Pell Center executive director. “We are excited to get these students back on our campus and work with them over the coming year.”
