The work of the Right Question Institute (RQI) is made possible by strong support and contributions from the RQI board, core staff, interns from local colleges, a cadre of consultants, and professionals in the field who help to drive the work in new, exciting ways.
The RQI Team
RQI values the perspectives and experiences of people from varying backgrounds. That value is reflected in our leadership and their stories. RQI is led by Co-Directors Luz Santana and Dan Rothstein, who are part of the founding core of the organization.
RQI Interns provide programmatic support to staff to help advance projects and initiatives across our fields of work. Past interns have worked with RQI while attending school at Harvard Graduate School of Education, Harvard College, Tufts University, Northeastern University, Boston College, Boston University, Brown University, Bates College, Washington University, UMass Boston, MIT, Suffolk University, and many others. There are opportunities to intern at RQI during the fall and spring academic semesters as well as during summer. Contact Siyi Chu if you are interested in applying.
