What are UI LEAP study groups? LEAP study groups are member-organized, member-led, and are designed to appeal to those who enjoy active
participation. Each group may be composed of up to 20 LEAP members who come together on a regular basis to
exchange insights in a common search for knowledge. Study groups are free and open to all LEAP members. Groups may focus on any subject area, such as: literature; creative arts; history and government; philosophy and theology; science and technology; and contemporary
issues. There are no academic pre-requisites, exams or grades. Depending upon the topic, groups may meet for a few sessions, or for a full semester. Study group
participants determine the time frame.
Each study group is led by a volunteer coordinator who kicks off discussion. No
expertise is required since this is a mutual learning experience. UI LEAP staff members are available to provide advice and assistance.

Are you interested in starting an interest group?

Once approved by the Curriculum Committee, the proposed interest group will be posted on the UI LEAP Web site. Notices will also be sent out via email and our newsletters.
Members can express interest via the Web site or by calling the UI LEAP office.
At least six members must be interested in the topic for the study group to move forward.
If there is sufficient interest among members, UI LEAP staff contacts the member who wishes to facilitate the group to discuss study group logistics.
Meeting dates and times are communicated to interested group participants by UI LEAP staff.
