2022 Salve Regina University Cultural and Historic Preservation Conference
Newport, Rhode Island (October 13-15)
Celebrating 75 Years of Preservation at Salve Regina University

Seventy-Five years ago, the Sisters of Mercy were gifted the turn of the century mansion, Ochre Court, as the base for founding a college. In the time since the university has grown to encompass 78 acres of historic grounds and structures. Today Salve Regina stands as a monument to that early work of preserving these historic structures to be enjoyed by students and the community. But preservation is not a static event, it is a constant process demanding adaptability. The future will require more of preservation practitioners who must grapple with rapid technological developments, social upheaval, and the need to expand interpretations to tell more diverse stories.

To both honor the legacy of the preservation movement as well as look to the future, the presentations will address some of the following themes:

• History of the preservation movement
• Technological developments aiding preservation efforts today
• The future of preservation addressing issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
• Research studies, which make a significant contribution to the fields of cultural and historic preservation.
