Lawrentians celebrated the School’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance’s annual Pride Week April 10 -14 with a variety of events, speakers and opportunities.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Belonging. Building. Becoming.
These statements of belief are reflected in Lawrenceville’s DEI Strategic Plan: Belonging, Building, Becoming. The plan was launched in June 2021 and solidifies our commitment to ensuring that our diverse and uniquely close-knit community is fully equitable, and inclusive for all.
Student, employee, and alumni affinity groups also support and advance this work, which extends across the Harkness table, in the science labs, in the Houses, on the field, in the studio, and on the stage. We welcome all community members to engage with us — our differing identities, experiences, and perspectives are also what bring us together as Lawrentians.

Arts, culture, dance, faith, food, music, and history – Lawrenceville’s annual Black History Month celebration was filled with events that were “educational, inspirational, communal, and entertaining,” according to Cameron Brickhouse, the School’s dean of diversity, inclusion, and community engagement.
