Answering the Call: Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement
On July 24, Head of School Steve Murray shared a letter outlining action steps to create a more just and equitable Lawrenceville, building upon the School's initial 13 commitments Murray detailed in June.
Murray wrote, "While we understand meaningful cultural change takes time, we also see an urgent need to deliver tangible, effective, and measurable changes immediately. To ensure our students will reconvene on a safer and more supportive campus this fall, we have built upon our initial 13 commitments based on the need to clarify community standards; facilitate student, faculty, and staff diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training; simplify reporting and accountability systems; and enhance student support services."
Lawrenceville’s Dean of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement Rick Holifield sent an email to School alumni, current students/families, and employees today, inviting them to a series of virtual Call to Action sessions happening throughout the month of August.
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.
