Nuala Pell Leadership Program Selects Fellows for 2019-2020

Ten rising juniors and seniors at Salve Regina University have been selected as fellows for the Nuala Pell Leadership Program for 2019-2020.  This innovative leadership development program is run by the Pell Center and 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.  Each student will also shadow a local leader involved in various segments of the public sector and reflect on their experience.  Additionally, the new cohort will travel to Washington D.C. in the spring of 2020 to meet with Congressional leaders, policy makers, and others.

“It is such a privilege to work with these wonderful students,” said Martha McCann Rose, program director. “I am confident they will continue change the world through public service in their future endeavors.”

“Mrs. Pell had an unshakeable faith in the students of Salve Regina University to make the world a far better place,” said Jim Ludes, Pell Center executive director.  “When I see the students in this year’s cohort, I find a reason to be optimistic about the future.”
