Ross Institute's mission is to provide all children with the skills, values and sensibilities to succeed in our new global society.
Knowing that the 21st century, with unprecedent-ed flows of information, people and capital, would pose new challenges for coming generations—challenges most educational institutions have left unaddressed—Courtney Sale Ross founded Ross Institute for Advanced Study and Innovation in Education in 1996. Future generations will need enhanced problem solving and decision making capabilities, high level communication skills and an ability to collaborate with people across many different cultures. Ross Institute is dedicated to developing solutions to these complex challenges, operating as a nexus for scholars and experts to do so through applied research, training, modeling and dissemination. As Ralph Abraham, one of Ross' founding mentors, has said, 'actions of an individual can create immense change' and 'could be manifest as the will of a planetary civilization to create a sustainable future. This is what we have to do within the education system.'
Encouraging scholars to break through tradition- al barriers that separate disciplines, Ross Institute seeks to maximize benefits of shared research and collaboration. Ross Institute facilitates and participates in the latest research on mind, brain and education as well as those on the effects of globalization on education.
The Institute is also engaged in ongoing efforts to transfer the Ross Model to public education. With Ross School in East Hampton, NY serving as the model school, Ross Institute offers consulting to municipalities, school districts and individual schools across the globe interested in learning about and experiencing the Ross Model. In direct support of schools adapting the Ross Model in their local settings, Ross Institute Academy pro- vides mentoring by affiliated scholars and Ross School master teachers through study tours, workshops, videoconferences and on-site con- sulting. Ross Institute Academy also provides training and certification for individual teachers interested in the Ross Model.
