Lawrenceville Call to Action: Diversity, Inclusion, & Community Engagement
On June 26, Head of School Steve Murray shared a letter outlining what he called Lawrenceville’s “preliminary but essential commitments” to make the School “a safer, more equitable, and more just learning, living, and working experience for members of the Black community, and in doing so, for every member of our community.” This message was shared with all members of the current School community as well as alumni.
Murray wrote, “Both our nation and our School stand at a critical juncture. Our community needs to see action and feel support now, and we need to see this as a moment in history, an opportunity. We have come so far as a School over many decades, and though I am seeing far more clearly now how far we still have to go, I greet the challenges ahead with strong commitment, resolve, and hope.”
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
