Special Message

"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."

Fred Rogers, author, children's advocate, and children's programming pioneer

Support WSIU Public Broadcasting

Our Shared Future

Just as Delyte Morris and Buren Robbins shared a vision for the future of regional public broadcasting at Southern Illinois University, today's WSIU stations work with our university and community partners to identify and meet the needs of our region.

We succeed only to the extent that our children learn, our viewers and listeners become engaged in the world around them, and our communities join together to make changes that improve the quality of life for everyone.

The future unfolding before us is vast, dynamic, and filled with challenges. But like the early visionaries at SIU, we believe these challenges can be transformed into opportunities by working together with intelligence, creativity, and compassion.

It is our heritage and our responsibility. And it can, with continued support, become our destiny.
