Online hub helps community colleges pursue student success

Resource hub uses best practices and research to ensure educational quality and academic progress

A new online hub and virtual community of practice aims to help community college educators access resources and best practices.

The LEAP Connections Resource Hub was launched by the Association of American College and Universities (AAC&U), with support from The Kresge Foundation, as part of AAC&U’s Advancing Roadmaps for Community College Leadership to Improve Student Learning and Success initiative.

LEAP Connections is an open-resource hub enabling access to information, templates, campus models, research, online dialogues, and webinars designed to support the scaling of evidence-based practices at community colleges that support educational quality and student success. The site is designed for community college faculty as well as other educators, academic administrators, and student affairs professionals.

The Advancing Roadmaps initiatives includes a family of interrelated projects and a growing network of leading community colleges. Through Advancing Roadmaps, AAC&U is supporting community college leaders and educators as they work to increase student success and achievement of the most important outcomes of high-quality undergraduate education programs.
