About Us

See Our Gifts

The Roosevelt Institution is a national network of student think tanks which connects students’ ideas to the political process and serves as the incubator for tomorrow’s leaders. Students are already producing policy—through classes, research papers but their innovative ideas have yet to reach the national discourse. Colleges are already effectively think tanks; they are just not effective think tanks


In the process of developing and promoting policy, the Roosevelt Institution connects students' ideas with policy-makers, educates students about the political process, and trains the next generation of progressive leaders.


As a part of their work with public officials, students research and write on the policy issues they find most pressing. Once students have developed their policy ideas on campuses, Roosevelt Institution members work to bring them before policymakers, think tanks and media outlets. Roosevelt promotes policy ideas through a variety of mediums including our website, our annual publication, the Roosevelt Review, and other publications.


In almost two years of operating, the Roosevelt Institution has been very successful as an organization. Chapters are developing on college campuses and students are coming together to work on pressing issues. A donation to the Roosevelt Institution will help fund our efforts in publishing our Review, holding conferences, and connecting our proposals to the national discourse.
