Core Values

Learn more about what drives our work.

Genuine Care

We approach our work with humility, empathy, and respect. Students, families, and educators are people–not numbers.


We operate with transparency and accountability to our communities, prioritizing open communication and reciprocity. 

Purposeful Curiosity

We intentionally engage diverse perspectives and research evidence to deepen our thinking. “Settled” answers need to be challenged — including our own.


We do not shy away from asking tough questions and embracing challenging answers to disrupt inequities.

Inclusive Community

We value, engage, and amplify the voices of those who are often the subjects of academic research but rarely lead it.
