On Wednesday, September 30th Dr. Stephen Weiss returned to The Hun School of Princeton, where he gave a lecture about effective negotiation strategies and skills. Dr. Weiss is a professor of policy, strategy, and international business at the Schulich School of Business – York University in Toronto, Ontario where his research is focused on complex international negotiations. Using case studies as examples, Dr. Weiss explained how negotiations can reach mutually agreeable and durable resolutions, particularly when interests are argued, rather than positions.

Patrick Quirk ’02 grew up in Hun School dormitories. As the son of Director of Athletics Bill Quirk and Assistant Director of Athletics Kathy Quirk, some of his earliest childhood memories include boarding students crowded around the dining room table in their faculty apartment in Carter Dormitory. “They [students] used to baby-sit me, come and cheer for me at my little league games, and treat me like a family member,” said Mr. Quirk.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
