Fostering Human Intelligence
MENSA welcomes people from every walk of life with IQs in the top 2 percent of the population. Our purposes are:
- to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity,
- to encourage research in the nature, characteristics and uses of intelligence, and
- to promote stimulating intellectual and social opportunities for its members.
We provide a forum for intellectual exchange among its members, who enjoy each other’s company while participating in a wide range of social and cultural activities.
