Founded in 1975 by Robert W. Craig, The Keystone Center was established to independently facilitate the resolution of national policy conflicts. In 1976, Keystone Science School was founded as a division of The Keystone Center to instill in students an abiding curiosity about science and an appreciation of leadership and civic engagement.
Nearly 40 years later, The Keystone Center's independent, collaborative approaches to problem-solving offer a proven blueprint for progress and impact for today's leaders and future generations.
We offer original, results-focused processes that help our participants craft disciplined solutions to the energy, environment, education and health issues of today and tomorrow. Working with an average of 2500 stakeholders and 4000 students annually, we guide leaders of this generation and students of the next toward productive decision-making.
The Keystone Center maintains an unwavering position of independence, not advocating for any single position but rather providing all participants the opportunity to truly own decisions by working with shared-goal partners to find mutually agreeable solutions.
