About the LEEP Center

Housed in the Shaich Family Alumni and Student Engagement Center, the LEEP Center delivers a range of helpful services for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumni and families, academic and University offices, and community and institutional partners and employers.


  • We support students in their personal and professional development by facilitating meaningful exploration, intentional engagement, thoughtful preparation, integrative learning, and insightful reflection.
  • We offer holistic advising, a range of preprofessional and civic opportunities, and a variety of resources and services designed to foster capacities of effective practice that prepare students for life after Clark.
  • We collaborate with academic and University offices, employers, community and institutional partners, alumni, and families to connect students with life-changing opportunities and prepare them to become informed contributors to society.


To connect students with, and prepare them for, transformative experiences that can be leveraged for future opportunities.


  • Student-centered. The best interests in promoting the personal and professional development of our students is at the heart of all of our decision-making, offerings, and advising.
