Introducing Friends of the Institute

As a tribute to Senator Kennedy's 47-year career, gifts of $47 and up recognize you as a Friend of the Institute.


University of Massachusetts

While the Edward M. Kennedy Institute partners with many universities and academic centers across the country, there is a special relationship with the University of Massachusetts. The Institute is located on the Boston Campus and through the openness and willingness of our partners at UMass Boston to explore program options and serve as beta testers, they have helped the Institute continue to shape its dynamic set of visitor experiences.

The President of the University and the Chancellor of the Boston Campus are members of the Institute’s Board of Directors. The Institute welcomes engagement with leadership, faculty and staff from all of the five UMass campuses in all of the activities that advance the agenda of active civic dialogue and participation.
