Support informed courage: Create a culture in which taking thoughtful risks and proposing or pursuing bold ideas is encouraged and expected.

Bolster collaboration: Support interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teamwork and the sharing of knowledge, leverage insights from others, and promote broad, interinstitutional community input and practice.
