I want teachers and leaders who understand me.


Surge. Expanding diversity in the
education leadership pipeline.

Welcome to the Surge Institute

We have an educational disconnect in our country.

More than 48% of our K-12 children are black or brown.

But only 17% of their teachers, 6% of their superintendents and 11 %

of their school board members look like them.

At Surge Institute, we are transforming the face of education.


The Surge Fellowship Program

The Surge Fellowship is our signature program for emerging

educational leaders of color which identifies and cultivates promising

talent in education to provide them with the expertise and aptitude

they need to not only succeed, but soar.
