Mission and Vision Statements

At last April Board of Directors’ meeting a sub-committee was formed to update and refine CCIRA’s mission and vision statements. This group of leaders clarified the difference between a mission statement and a vision statement and studied examples of statements from other state councils of the International Literacy Association, then began work on formulating mission and vision statements for the Colorado Council. The work was completed at this past August Leadership meeting.

A special thank you to all the CCIRA members who met to work on these statements:


The Colorado Council of the International Reading Association collaboratively encourages, supports, and advances literacy through research-based instructional practices to increase literacy access to all.


All people will be empowered to critically engage in our changing world by developing and utilizing literacy skills throughout life.
