Description

The PIR program is designed for the purpose of providing academic support to a select number of participating Virginia Middle and High Schools. Host schools are usually diverse, have a high percentage free lunch student population, and desire support for educating students and parents about post-secondary educational opportunities. Faculty members serving as PIRs for the program serve in a selective role as ambassadors for the university and the academic division and must be approved by both the college and academic unit for participation.
