The School-University Research Network (SURN) develops programs for building level instructional leaders, teacher leaders, and superintendents as well as other school leaders on critical educational leadership and instructional issues. SURN works with 30 Virginia school districts to conduct relevant research and provide professional development in order to promote quality teaching and learning. Today, these 30 Virginia school districts actively participate in SURN through providing access to their schools, faculty, and students for research; and participating in professional development. Such programs are created to address needs identified by SURN Superintendents.
Effective March 12, 2020 all events and gatherings in university facilities as well as university-sponsored events on and off campus are suspended through at least April 3. This includes events sponsored by any recognized student organization and other affiliated groups. Whenever possible, we will seek opportunities to enable some events through virtual means and platforms.
