Our Vision: Individuals, organizations, and communities in Central Illinois intuitively, purposefully, and effectively collaborate around shared priorities to achieve social, economic, and environmental health and prosperity across the region.
Our Mission: As a catalyst, convener, and champion, CIRCLE will elevate the practice of collaboration in Central Illinois by:
- Identifying collaborative opportunities;
- Promoting regional partnerships; and
- Providing collaborative resources and assistance.
CIRCLE's defined region, for grant purposes, initially included the Central and North Central Economic Development Regions. These boundaries are fluid so that services may be provided wherever successful collaboration will benefit individuals, organizations and communities.
