  • Addressing social issues and public concerns that are not otherwise adequately covered in the community
  • Cultivating an environment of discovery, learning, collaboration, mutual regard, tolerance and civic pride
  • Encouraging experimentation, creativity, new ideas and high standards in all aspects of our work
  • Providing a safe haven for children
  • Serving under-represented interests by providing access to diverse and opposing viewpoints
  • Working cooperatively and in partnership with other organizations and interests that share our goals in the community
  • Exercising responsible stewardship of our human, fiscal and other resources.
