The MPT Mission

MPT enriches lives and strengthens communities through the power of media.

Watch some shining examples of what we do in a year:

A Vision for the Community

We envision a region of dynamic communities where people - informed, inspired and moved by insights gained through use of MPT's public media services - engage in respectful dialog, develop common aspirations and together create a healthier and more vibrant society.

Guiding Values

Lifelong Learning
We believe that people want to know and understand the world around them, that all of us are nurtured as humans by exposure to the arts, nature, science and innovation.

Caring for Others
We believe children are our future; they deserve a safe and substantive learning environment. We believe older adults offer invaluable experience and wisdom; their independence and vitality should be encouraged, their stories and dignity honored.

We believe a well-spent leisure refreshes and rejuvenates; a respite from the pressures of modern life helps renew physical, spiritual, mental and social well-being, leading to hope for a better tomorrow.

Mutual Respect
We believe that our society is enhanced when people have access to diverse perspectives, presented in a balanced way and free from commercial influence.

Civic Engagement
We believe that individuals who participate in civic life and calm discourse are more content with their lives, and civilization is advanced when people engage with their communities.
