LEAP's (www.leap.ubc.ca) goal is to provide first and second year students with a coordinated and collaborative point of contact to access resources which support their academic success. LEAP provides learning support and opportunities for academic enhancement by offering access to online and campus-based face to face resources, peer support, tutorial sessions and technology supported tools. The overarching goal is to support student success and to provide easy access to resources.
