The LEAP Employer­-Educator Compact: Making Quality a Priority as Americans Go to College
Liberal Education, v99 n2 Spr 2013
Through the Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) initiative, the Association of American Colleges and Universities seeks to engage employers with the value, goals, and best practices of a twenty-first-century liberal education; to publicize employers' support for liberal education; and to encourage employer-educator partnerships that provide applied learning experiences for undergraduate students. In 2012, the LEAP Presidents' Trust, a leadership group consisting of presidents from all sectors of higher education, initiated the LEAP Employer-Educator Compact, an effort to bring together college presidents and leading employers of college graduates in order to support the goals of the LEAP initiative. At a forum held in Washington, DC, on April 10, 2013, more than two hundred distinguished leaders in business, higher education, and the nonprofit sector came together to endorse the Employer-Educator Compact printed in this article.
