Opportunities for Students

Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy

Nuala Pell Leadership Program

The Nuala Pell Leadership Program provides opportunities to a select number of diverse, high-achieving student fellows at Salve Regina, exposing them to both the theory and practice of leadership. Named in honor of the late Nuala Pell, wife of Sen. Claiborne Pell and an avid supporter of public service, the program aims to build leadership skills that can be used in the classroom and beyond.

Accomplished leaders from the public and private sectors leaven the experience with practical real-world lessons from their own lives. Students in the program also work in teams to design and implement a service project, shadow a community leader and receive mentoring from upperclassmen from preceding cohorts of the program.

Students are nominated by University faculty and staff to apply during the spring semester of their first year at Salve Regina.

Internships and Student Employment

Salve Regina students are eligible for a select number of internship and student employment positions at the Pell Center each year. Through these positions, students engage with a broad spectrum of public issues while gaining professional experience in an office environment.

Applicants should have a demonstrated writing aptitude and research skills in order to assist with research for studies and reports, write for the Pell Center’s blog and assist with event planning and execution. Students with an interest in graphic design may assist in developing communications and marketing materials.

Interns and student employees should be prepared to attend Pell Center events and to assist in keeping Pell Center constituents and community members engaged in the civic dialogue. Visit Handshake to find openings at the Pell Center, or email pellcenter@salve.edu for more information.
