- To step into the unknown, and into possibility, without having all the answers
- To hold steady in the face of both the seductions and threats of the status quo
- To stand up when others can’t (or won’t)
These include boundaries between nations and, therefore, between peoples. Between disciplines and ideologies. Between the classroom and society. Between making a living and making a difference.
Our most profound problems cross national boundaries, requiring not just interdisciplinary thought but also interlocking experiences to understand them. They call upon problem-solvers to submit their whole selves in the service of creating sustainable change.
We are a financially sustainable social enterprise; the vast majority of our operating expenses are covered through program fees and earned income, by conducting executive programs for universities, foundations, NGOs, and companies.
In the United States, we have 501c3 non-profit status, which allows any philanthropic contributions to be tax-deductible. Philanthropic contributions help us provide more scholarships, launch new programs, reach new territories, and serve a larger audience.
