Our Mission & Vision
The Melton Foundation promotes and enables global citizenship as a way for individuals and organizations to work together across boundaries of place and identity to address global challenges.
The Melton Foundation is a leading proponent of global citizenship as a way to encourage people and institutions to collaborate on shared global challenges. We accomplish this through a portfolio of hands-on projects and activities that involve a growing network of Melton Fellows, universities, and partners in diverse world regions who share our commitment to promoting global citizenship.
The Melton Foundation and its Fellows are guided by a set of core values that define who we aspire to be and how we project ourselves in the world.
We have a duty to mobilize the Foundation and its network to promote the practice of global citizenship through local and global action.
We acknowledge and appreciate cultural differences, and actively nurture in ourselves and in others the ability to understand the world from multiple perspectives.
Our passion for learning about different fields, issues, and ideas empowers Fellows to be interdisciplinary thinkers and doers.
Responsibility, and Reciprocity
We practice open communication and personal accountability among each other as the basis of a global network of support, learning experiences, and lifelong personal and professional relationships.
