50TH ANNIVERSARY KICKOFF

May 2015 marked the 50th Anniversary of the Hinckley Institute of Politics. The Institute celebrated with the global perspective of Mr. Maziar Bahari, author of New York Times bestseller Then They Came for Me and subject of Jon Stewart's directorial debut Rosewater.  Mr. Bahari spoke to 300 of the Hinckley Institute's closest friends, including past directors, alumni, interns, community leaders, and the Hinckley family about today's urgent need for political engagement and international cooperation.  

Listen to Mr. Bahari's interview on Radio West here

Stay tuned for a year of events commemorating the Hinckley's past and anticipating its promising future.

VICTORIOUS UK CAMPAIGN INTERNS
 

The British Parliamentary elections proved exhilarating for the seven Hinckley Interns working on Conservative campaigns, all of which claimed success against the predictions of all polls and pundits.  Our interns played a pivotal role, knocking doors, analyzing data, and connecting with their respective communities.  In the words of Director Jowers, “Each of you worked beyond hard, hyper-effectively, and with good cheer.”
 

In fact, Director Jowers was able to join our interns as they crossed the finish line of their well-fought races!
