We are so honored and excited to celebrate CICS Bucktown Dean of Students, Bryan Jackson! He was selected as part of an elite group to be awarded the Surge Fellowship for 2017. The Surge Institute is actively working to change the face of educational reform, and we are thrilled to celebrate this opportunity for Bryan and the entire Bucktown community!
Surge 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 individuals to create a pipeline of diverse leaders in education.
The Surge Fellowship, the Institute’s signature program, is described 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.
