  • We promote mutual understanding and trust as a foundation for effective partnerships.
  • We enhance the value of our work by drawing on multiple national and disciplinary perspectives.
  • We act as a catalyst for ideas, relationships, and collaborative action that transcend borders and engage leaders, institutions, and the public.
  • We produce work of high quality that is non-partisan in nature and that provides insight and ideas to address shared challenges.
