Hull Springs demonstrates exciting potential for far reaching economic impact.
This unique property will serve as an economic driver for the Northern Neck — attracting visitors and introducing practicing teachers to this unique rural area of the state, where new teacher recruitment is sometimes challenging. Hull Springs will be a center for place-based learning that is relevant to the community.
The director currently is studying the feasibility of partnering with the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission and the Longwood Small Business Development Center to offer entrepreneurship courses focused on the unique business opportunities for this rural area. As an asset to Longwood University, Hull Springs serves as a marketing tool for new faculty and student recruitment, where they will be engaged in varied curriculums from science to art.
Through experiences at Hull Springs, students and faculty will have expanded opportunities to actively apply classroom learning in the natural environment.
