Nine values guide our organization. These values hold us accountable to our history, clarify our intentions, and guide our continued formation.

One of these values is process, which we perform by being responsive to the variety of projects we undertake. Learn more about this value and how and why our activities are marked by change, exchange, and self-reflection by browsing the projects below.
