Institute was founded in 2014, in response to a dearth of leadership of color at the decision-making tables
within education reform. Surge provides leadership development resources to
institutions and individuals to create a pipeline of diverse leaders in education.
Fellowship, the Institute’s signature program, is designed to identify and
groom emerging talent in education, and provide them with leadership
development as well as access to networks and visibility, empowering them to
bring new ideas, perspectives, and solutions that change the landscape of education.
