Lawrenceville is fortunate to have a first-class faculty, but
the competition for excellent “triple threat” faculty, who can teach, coach and preside over our student
Houses, is becoming more intense. We seek to increase salaries sufficiently to put us above the median for our peer group. An endowment of up to $3-4 million would generate up to $150,000-200,000 per year in
spendable income to supplement faculty salaries.
To be more flexible in responding to changes in student elective interests year to year, and to better
accommodate faculty sabbaticals and leaves for maternity, illness or other personal reasons, we seek to hire 2-3 temporary, part-time faculty each year as needed. Sourcing nearby Princeton University, an endowed gift of $2 million would provide us with $100,000 per year in spendable income to hire promising part-time teachers.
Supporting faculty travel is one of the most organic ways to globalize our curriculum. An endowment of $1 million would allow us to support about 10 faculty-proposed trips and/or send additional faculty on student spring and summer trips.
