Our Approach

Honoring Our Founder's Legacy

The work we do at The Hunt Institute honors the legacy of founder James B. Hunt, Jr., the former four-term governor of North Carolina who distinguished himself as an ardent champion of education.

We bring together experts from across the country.

The Hunt Institute works tirelessly in a nonpartisan way to design strategy, shape policy, and drive educational improvements on the national and state levels.

Using our depth and breadth of knowledge, we unify resources and experts from across the country, to:

  • Inspire visionary leadership and dialogue;
  • Mobilize strategic action to serve as a catalyst for transforming public education; and
  • Secure America‚Äôs future through a quality public education for all.

The Hunt Institute is the only organization in the nation exclusively dedicated to empowering governors, policymakers, and other educational leaders in the development and implementation of nonpartisan, comprehensive strategies for the transformation of public education.
