Mission Statement (The Institute on the American Dream)

Our Mission Statement

The Institute will define, analyze, and compare concepts of individual, ethnic, and national American dreams, seek their origins, and evaluate who wins and who loses under the various definitions. The Institute will organize academic and community programs and seek educationally collaborative ways for the college and others to interact with the Erie area to understand and foster appropriate visions for the future.

To meet the aforementioned goals an Advisory Group for the Institute has been formed.
