  • From the Head Master’s Perspective

    I have been on the road quite a bit since September, visiting with various alumni groups in large and small settings. They often ask what I am discovering as I get to know Lawrenceville, and in my answer I describe the remarkable degree of good will, commitment, and joy embedded in the fabric of this community.

  • The Context for Planning

    What does strategic planning do for us? Done right, it reflects an organization’s values, yields a vision for its future, and delivers results – a strategy – based on institutional mission. It enables an organization to respond rationally to the context in which it finds itself, its challenges and opportunities. Mission, values, vision and strategy work in lockstep, which means that Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16 and the Board of Trustees are examining the enduring purpose and role of Lawrenceville as an institution as they develop a plan for its future.

  • Examining the Strategic Planning Process

    From the beginning, Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16 has tried to include as many members of the community as possible in the strategic planning process.

  • What is Lawrenceville 20/20?

    When it is fully developed, the new strategic plan – for now called Lawrenceville 20/20 – will present a clear and compelling vision for what Lawrenceville aspires to be in the foreseeable future. Its aspirations will be measurable, its ambitions will be aligned with available resources, and its priorities will reflect the history and needs of the School, the cherished traditions of the community, and the best interests of students, faculty and staff. It will build on the successes of the previous plan – Strategic Directions II (SD-II) – but it will turn its focus to sustaining and supporting the fundamental core of the Lawrenceville experience as expressed over the past nine months by alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and the Board of Trustees: House, Harkness, community, character, and excellence.

    Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16 and the Mission Writing Committee expect to have a solid draft of a purpose-driven mission statement to present to the Board for initial consideration at its May meeting, and Steve anticipates sharing a clear vision for Lawrenceville’s future, based on four targeted areas of priority, with the Board at the same time.

  • Planning Committees

    Strategic planning, optimally, is a collaborative process, as evidenced by the many meetings Head Master Steve Murray H’55 ’65 P’16 has held with alumni, parents, faculty and staff. But collaboration isn’t restricted to information-gathering. Steve is working closely with a Strategic Planning Steering Committee of administrators, faculty and trustees – many of whom are also alumni and/or parents – to sort through the data, test ideas, and identify priorities.
