VISION 2030 » Impact



The journey to strive for greatness started on December 19, 2011 when Bishop Timothy Doherty approved a new constitution which included the addition of the first LCSS Executive Director position to be responsible for all functions and operations of the LCSS. The constitution was preceded by an institutional comprehensive assessment of LCSS that was conducted by ACE Consulting from the University of Notre Dame. There were several key recommendations from the report and the first LCSS Executive Director, Eric Davis, was hired in June 2012. Those recommendations included:

  • Improve confusing governance structure
  • Hire an Executive Director/President for LCSS
  • Improve operations of the four schools
  • Clarify role of lay and clergy
  • Develop solutions for impending financial crisis
  • Improve enrollment practices
  • Develop a comprehensive technology plan
  • Migrate from event fundraising to more comprehensive advancement approach
  • Launch strategic planning process

Fast forward to today, there have been many milestones reached and there is much to be celebrated. Vision 2030 has been more than a series of capital campaigns, rather it has been a more comprehensive approach towards the long-term vision of LCSS. What transpired over the last nine years has been transformational and is officially the largest fundraising initiative in the system’s history. Vision 2030 has enabled us to expand on the tremendous things happening in our schools and grow enrollment. We are so grateful for everyone’s incredible response and for the momentum that has been created. Since July 1, 2012, over $16.7 million dollars have been generated to support students, faculty, programs and infrastructure initiatives.
