Salve Regina University
Cultural and Historic Preservation (CHP)
Grills Lecture Series
SNEC established the Grills Lecture Series in Historic Preservation, a public lecture series that will complement the university’s annual conference on cultural and historic preservation.
Historic Mills Research Project
Over a two-year period beginning in the spring semester 2018, CHP students completed National Register of Historic Places nominations for two 19th century textile mill sites – the Annaquatucket and Daniel Drive mills – in North Kingstown.
A grant was awarded to expand capabilities in 3D digital documentation of artifacts, architectural elements, and entire structures. Two computer workstations and two 3D Printers designed for 3D capture and editing were purchased. In addition, a small aerial drone that carries a high-resolution digital camera was purchased to train students in the use of photogrammetry. As a condition for approval, all funded equipment grants must improve the experiential involvement of students.
CHP Internship Program
SNEC developed six new paid internships for CHP students over the next two years to work in their fields of study.
