Mission and Vision
Skyline Research Institute (SRI)
Founded by family research, communication, law, policy, and storytelling experts, SRI is currently developing the following initiatives: The Family Literacy Project and The Family and Public Life Initiative.
The Institute works to advance and promote this new and innovative conceptual framework on the family by providing training and resources to help individuals, universities, and organizations provide the best tools to understand the complex roles that the family plays in human experience.
The Family Literacy Project and Family and Public Life initiatives (in development) will provide educational opportunities and resources for how to recognize, understand, and analyze family influences in contemporary life through the intersecting sub-themes of marriage, gender, motherhood and fatherhood.
The challenges families are facing in the 21st century are immense and require fresh thinking and creative collaboration across all sectors of society. Deeper understanding of the power of families is an untapped resource with remarkable generative power.
Improving public understanding about the value of families in our world will require the collective wisdom, collaboration, and resources of engaged and responsive people who are passionate about fortifying families.
We measure our success by how well we can advance the public understanding of marriage and family across multiple sectors, creating new opportunities and resources for students, professionals, governments, and life-long learners to develop, critically reflect and act upon a deeper understanding of this fundamental unit of society.
Education & Training
Our mission is to advance and promote family literacy by providing training and resources to help individuals understand why the family is the fundamental unit of society and to grow in the ability to discern and analyze the fundamental intersections of the family within social, political and cultural life through the “family lens.”
We work to advance our innovative conceptual framework on the family by providing training and resources to help individuals, universities, and organizations provide the best tools to understand the complex roles that the family plays in human experience.
Our vision is to encourage a renaissance of successful marriages and family life in which all human life is valued and families flourish.
With improved family literacy, people of all ages will be able to see how family influences are found in all dimensions of culture; how important stable family life is to individual and social well-being; and that world religions have a shared understanding about the importance of the family.
