THE MISSION OF THE CENTER
The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives exists to inspire young persons and public audiences through the study of individuals who have made a difference in the world—persons of conscience, creativity, courage, and compassion who have advanced human rights, equality, and personal and societal flourishing. Through teaching, research, and public programming the Center serves as a place to study and honor exemplars from past and present in their context in search of sorely needed wisdom for today and tomorrow.
