Promise of Chautauqua

Following a community-wide conversation conducted over three years with input from hundreds of community members, the Board of Trustees of Chautauqua Institution crafted a strategy reaching to the year 2018 that will enable Chautauqua to meet its promise and extend its impact.  This plan seeks nothing less than to deliver the Chautauqua experience over time at the highest quality to greater numbers of people and to facilitate broader discussion of topics that shape our times.  Built upon the values of civility, inclusivity, sustainability, innovation and engagement, this plan calls for investment in The Leadership, the Grounds, the Experience, and The Promise.
