The vision of the Brooks Institute is to create a paradigm shift or renaissance in animal welfare by advancing animal law, animal policy, and related interdisciplinary studies.

More specifically, the Brooks Institute’s vision is to be the preeminent think tank for animal law, animal policy, and related interdisciplinary animal studies.

  • Regarding intellectual property, the Institute supports empirical research and data and does not have either a protectionist or advocacy agenda. It manages intellectual property to maintain quality and retain quality control, interests, and influence.
  • The Institute has a neutral, synergistic environment for subject-matter experts to brainstorm and produce actionable projects. This type of environment assists in advancing the actionable projects—that are structured to be objective and independent of bias or agenda—through collaborative grants and commissions.
  • With the use of information and media resources, the Institute inspires, motivates, and equips advocates of animal welfare and protection; and is transforming the hearts and minds of the public and influencers.
  • Through coordination and collaboration with other organizations, the Institute and its respective members serve as liaisons who synergistically work to advance opportunistic projects.
Failure, for us, is not trying something new and innovative.
