Mission, Vision, & Values

MISSION: 

Goldstein Museum of Design uses the power of design to foster improved quality of life for individuals and communities.

 

IMPACT: 

Through design, Goldstein Museum of Design inspires empathy for others and advances knowledge.

 

COMMITMENTS:
  • We are a public bridge, connecting the College of Design to the community, and an open window into the complex narrative of historic and contemporary design.
  • We are eager to learn about the students and faculty we serve – their needs, interests, and expectations.
  • We recognize that object-based learning occurs across the life span and requires different strategies to meet learners at their level of understanding.
  • We support and commit to museum best practices for collection preservation, interpretation, and access.
  • We strive to make prudent decisions in allocating human, financial, and environmental resources.
