Welcome to the Roosevelt Institute at American University, a progressive student-run policy organization that empowers students to create and advocate their ideas for change!
The Roosevelt Institute, working to redefine the rules that guide our social and economic realities, is home to the nation’s largest network of emerging doers and thinkers committed to re-imagining and re-writing the rules in their communities to create lasting change. Our members, organizing on 120 college campuses and in 38 states nationwide, partner with policy makers and communicators to provide them with clear, principled ideas and visionary, actionable plans. Our members are actively influencing policy on the local, state and national level – from introducing legislation on protections for LGBTQ youth to addressing where universities invest their money. Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, Roosevelters re-imagine America as it should be — a place where work is rewarded, everyone participates, and everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity. Recently, too many young people have started to give up on using their voice to shape our future. Not us. We write and enact ideas that expand access to power and prosperity -- encouraging new voices and new rules. Whether 17 or 70, Roosevelt exists to find, nurture, and curate the finest minds, supporting their work on the biggest problems – and solutions. We offer them a lifelong intellectual home and the opportunity to create change now and as your careers progress. Some idealists fade into the shadows when the going gets tough. Others remain so attached to their lofty dreams that they stay stuck in the clouds. We know exactly what effective aspirations look like: we draw daily inspiration not just from the ideals Franklin and Eleanor believed in, but the tenacity it took to achieve them. You’re now a part of that.
