Mission and Vision

Our Vision

All Minnesota students will have the 21st century skills they need to be successful in a global economy.

Our Mission

To serve as a catalyst to position 21st century skills at the center of Minnesota education by building collaborative partnerships among education (pre-K–16), business, community and government leaders through:
  • Engaging educators, employers, community members, parents and policy makers in an ongoing dialog that provides recommendations and advice about 21st century education
  • Creating and promoting state and local infrastructure (technology, professional development, assessments and standards) that supports 21st century education

Who we are
  • An alliance of educational districts, institutions, professionals and companies joined by the common mission of preparing our students to be more successful in a global 21st century economy
  • Working from a grass-roots level encouraging the state of Minnesota to formally incorporate 21st century skills into our school curriculum
  • Supporting each other by sharing resources in standards, assessment, curricula and best practices
