Leadership Education in Action Program
What is LEAP?
LEAP was created to foster the development of visionary, innovative, and creative leaders. Designed to promote the development of "agents of institutional change" LEAP provides "big picture: perspectives and the knowledge which empowers people to lead and shape our district and the community college system. LEAP provides individuals who want to be leaders the opportunity to assess their current leadership skills, use a variety of tools to create a professional development plan to reach their goals, and engage in opportunities to build the confidence necessary to make the leap to their future.
