WGBH | Mission and commitments


WGBH studiosOur mission

WGBH’s mission is an enduring, empowering call to action, one we’re proud to wear on our sleeve — and even on our building. Next time you enter our One Guest Street studios, look up! You'll see it wrapped around the outside of our facility, 90 feet across:

"WGBH enriches people's lives through programs and services that educate, inspire, and entertain, fostering citizenship and culture, the joy of learning, and the power of diverse perspectives."

Our commitments

WGBH makes a commitment to:

• Foster an informed and active citizenry

• Make knowledge and the creative life of the arts, sciences, and humanities available to the widest possible public

• Reflect the diversity of our audience, inviting a sense of inclusion and a better understanding of each other

• Improve, for all people, access to public media

• Be a trusted partner to parents and educators, providing programs and services that promote the healthy development of children

• Serve the individual not just as a spectator but as a participant, able and willing to learn new skills through our programs and services
