LEAP Campus Action Network

The best way for AAC&U Member campuses to get involved in the LEAP initiative is through the LEAP Campus Action Network (CAN). CAN brings together campuses and organizations that are committed to liberal education, helps them to improve their efforts to ensure all students achieve essential liberal education outcomes, and shines a spotlight on educational practices that work.

340 colleges and universities have already pledged to proactively advance liberal education for all students—including those historically underserved by higher education. CAN members are creating new ways to develop and publicize practices—curricular, co-curricular, and pedagogical—that help students achieve essential liberal education outcomes.

What does it mean to be a LEAP institution?

If your campus is already a member of CAN, or to view the membership list, visit the current members page.

Joining CAN is simple and free for AAC&U members. To explore benefits of participation in CAN, or to join, visit the join page.
