Virginia became a partner state in the LEAP campaign in 2006. In collaboration with AAC&U, leaders in Virginia are piloting a series of campus action and advocacy efforts that champion the value of a liberal education for all college students. Through a variety of activities, the state leaders are advancing a strategic dialogue on the future of higher education and the importance of liberal education in the state.
News and Announcements
On November 18, 2008, LEAP co-hosted a public forum at the University of Richmond, Common Wealth: College Learning and Virginia's Shared Future. This statewide LEAP event brought together policy, business, K-12, civic, and communications leaders, and representatives from Virginia's public and private colleges and universities to examine the learning college students need and how to achieve it. State Secretary of Education Tom Morris co-hosted the event.
