On May 11, 2015, the Hinckley Institute celebrated its 50th Anniversary. 

I love the Hinckley Institute. It is the reason I am where I am today.
— Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams
The Hinckley Institute was instrumental in instilling in me an appreciation for government and politics. It opened the door to a new, exciting world of service in the Utah State Legislature.
— Utah Senator Pat Jones
The Hinckley Institute led me to my first paid job in politics at the age of 19 and the rest is history.
— Karl Rove
