Good afternoon,

LEAP Texas is pleased to invite well-developed proposals that focus upon how public institutions are leveraging the Texas Core Curriculum to improve undergraduate education; how private institutions are leveraging the principles of LEAP Texas to improve their undergraduate general education curricula; and how all institutions are creating robust and authentic assessments of student learning, embedding high-impact practices in undergraduate curriculum, and providing opportunities for faculty to continue to develop and improve curriculum and pedagogy. The theme for this year's Forum will be Building Strong Undergraduate Education: The Essentials, and will be held February 19-21 at El Centro College, in Dallas, Texas.
