LEAP Initiative/General Education

North Dakota University System faculty members are leading the review of University System general education requirements based on the Liberal Education and America's Promise initiative.

A national initiative, LEAP champions the value of liberal education for individual students and for a nation dependent on economic creativity and democratic vitality. The initiative focuses campus practice on fostering essential learning outcomes for all students, whatever their chosen field of study.

LEAP seeks to engage the public with core questions about what really matters in college; give students a compass to guide their learning; make a set of essential learning outcomes the preferred framework for educational excellence and assessment of learning; and create new alignments between educational secondary and higher education.
