Named for Senator Ted Kennedy, the non-profit educational institution on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Boston is dedicated to educating the public, students, and teachers about the role and the importance of the US Senate in our history. The EMK Institute features a unique Senate Immersion Module in a full-scale model of the Senate chamber in Washington, D.C.

In addition to a re-creation of Senator Kennedy’s office, the Institute will also house interactive exhibitions in ancillary galleries and host a series of Model Senate sessions, lectures, and more in the replica chamber.

Advancing Senator Kennedy’s lifetime of service and passion for engaging in the public square, the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate is dedicated to educating the public about our government, invigorating public discourse, encouraging participatory democracy, and inspiring the next generation of citizens and leaders to engage in the civic life of their communities

The 68,000-square-foot center comprises an elegantly symmetrical white concrete base crowned by a dark-gray volume clad in metallic paint. The institute, which graces a site adjacent to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library on the campus of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, will serve a dual role as a space for civic education and a place to honor Senator Kennedy’s lifework.
