MPT's mission is to educate, entertain and enlighten the people of Maryland and beyond through creative programs and services of the highest quality, delivered through traditional public broadcasting and new multimedia technologies. MPT's commitment to excellence, innovation, diversity, and the values of Marylanders is essential to this mission.
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.
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.
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.
We believe that our society is enhanced when people have access to diverse perspectives, presented in a balanced way and free from commercial influence.
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.
