In preparation for its 200th anniversary, St. Louis University High School (SLUH), the oldest school west of the Mississippi River, retained Dini Spheris to lead the Imagining ’18 strategic planning process. This process, which engaged more than 400 board members, faculty, alumni and friends from St. Louis and across the U.S., worked in seven visioning groups to formulate strategic goals in the areas of curriculum, globalization, counseling, finances, facilities and Jesuit identity and campus ministry. This strategic plan resulted in goals that were ultimately translated into specific projects that would require additional operating, capital and endowment support. By the implementation of SMART goals — including determining what associated costs might be funded in the proposed campaign — priority objectives were established. Dini Spheris continued engagement with campaign planning and campaign counsel for SLUH’s first major capital, endowment and program-based major gift campaign, which has raised more than $63 million toward its goal.
