I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth . . . with desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order . . . being a man that neither affects what is new nor admires what is old, and that hates every kind of imposture.

~ Francis Bacon (1605)

OUR MISSION

For more than 40 years, our goal has been to promote
essential change in education and society by cultivating

embodies intellectual empathy, intellectual humility,
intellectual perseverance, intellectual integrity, and
intellectual responsibility.
