Nebraskans possess the knowledge, understanding, and empathy
to cultivate a more informed, thoughtful, and just society.

We believe that culture and connection are essential rights of human expression.

We celebrate shared histories and diverse cultures.

We value conversation that respects difference and finds points of common experience.

We develop engaging experiences for all Nebraskans.

We provide inclusive opportunities to learn from the past to enrich our future.

We are flexible and responsive to the changing and pressing needs of Nebraskans.
We expose people to other worlds of expression and human existence.
We foster lives of purpose and meaning.
