New City Commons

Reimagining the Common Good

What We Do

We combine scholarly knowledge and institutional experience to create innovative models and materials for leaders seeking to serve the common good in a variety of institutional settings.


How to Participate

Learn. We offer a host of educational resources—including short weekly briefings, substantive articles, educational curricula, and book-length projects—all designed to strengthen institutional leaders to seek the common good in our time. Read along with us.

Invite. We happily send our team members to serve institutional leaders, organizational boards, and larger network gatherings through public presentations or private strategic support. We’d love to visit you.

Partner. We are eager to build collaborative friendships of mutual support with both individuals and institutions seeking to serve the common good. Partner with us.

Subscribe to Culture Briefing

Each week, we curate a short list of must-read articles from around the web. We call it Culture Briefing, and it is designed to cultivate cultural wisdom by directing your attention to important ideas and conversations.
