Since its founding in 1982, Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc. (LEAP) has been intent on “growing leaders” within the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities across the country. A national, nonprofit organization, LEAP works to achieve its mission by: Developing people, because leaders are made, not born; Informing society, because leaders know the issues; and Empowering communities, because leaders are grounded in strong, vibrant communities. For over 25 years LEAP has created culturally relevant workshops and programs for an extensive roster of clients, including colleges and universities, community and student organizations, federal and state government agencies and Fortune 1000 companies across the country.
For more than a decade APAHE and LEAP has partnered to offer the Leadership Development Program in Higher Education (LDPHE) in order to address the underrepresentation of senior executives in our colleges and universities. Over 300 graduates of this summer intensive program have benefited from training workshops and mentoring provided by senior level Asian American executives representing all segments of higher education. Whether you are a young professional or middle manager seeking advancement, LDPHE is the first step towards recognizing how you can keep your Asian American values while developing your path towards senior administration.
