- To serve as a magnet organization for linking, public, private and academic institutions into an effective network to support interdisciplinary communications, management innovation and professional development among Blacks choosing public service careers.
- To provide intensive and rigorous training in critical management areas in response to the specialized needs of Black public sector professionals.
- To identify and groom younger, emerging Black administrators and provide relevant exposure to the challenges and rewards of public service careers.
