About the LEAP Connections Resource Hub

Welcome to the LEAP Connections Resource Hub!

AAC&U designed the LEAP Connections Resource Hub to answer a call for a collaborative space for institutions to connect, discuss, share, and advance evidence-based practices, based on the LEAP framework, that support educational quality and student learning and success.

The Hub's features—Community Forum, Resource Library, Events, and Directory—each offer a unique opportunity for campus faculty, student affairs staff and administrators, and national partners with interests in community college student success to engage with resources to improve student learning.

AAC&U thanks the network of community college LEAP leaders from AAC&U’s Roadmap project. Their successes—and challenges—in building institutional capacity to improve student completion rates and access to high-quality learning for all students inform these webpages. Site users from community colleges and four-year institutions alike will find Roadmap campus examples are just one useful, critical component of the Hub’s resources.

Development of the LEAP Connections Resource Hub was supported by a grant from The Kresge Foundation. To learn more about the Foundation and its grant programs, visit kresge.org.
