The day will start with “LNJ Looks Back,” a 20-year State Report Card examining how the state has handled key issues—as assessed by LNJ graduates.

The Report Card will be based on the responses of LNJ graduates to an
on-line survey that LNJ is posting, starting August 28th.

The survey asks graduates to identify the top issues that captured the public’s mind at the time those graduates were actually in the LNJ program…in areas such as:

Environment and Economy
Health, Human Services, Criminal Justice, Education, Arts
Race and Immigration
Government, Politics, Ethics and Media

The survey then asks which of the issues within these categories are still relevant today. And it also asks which issues New Jersey’s leaders have addressed well, not well, or not at all.

Respondents also have the opportunity to identify the top five issues on the minds of the public today.

The predicate for the survey has been the information gathered from four focus groups conducted with LNJ graduates. The participants in the focus sessions were asked to identify the key issues that have challenged the state over the last two decades, and offer their perspectives on how best LNJ could assess the state’s “performance.”

Both the qualitative and quantitative research is being coordinated by the President of The Regional Planning Partnership, Dianne Brake, LNJ ’90.
