Applications now being accepted for new spring LEEP cohort at GSLIS

GSLIS is opening a spring admissions cycle for our popular LEEP distance learning option. The new MS cohort will begin in January. The priority application deadline is November 15, 2012. Dates for the on-campus orientation are tentatively set for January 3-9, 2013.

Since its beginning in 1996, LEEP has been an innovative hybrid program that combines web-based education with brief periods of on-campus instruction. GSLIS remains committed to offering a robust educational experience where students feel connected to one another as well as to our outstanding faculty via varied synchronous and asynchronous activities.

Sixteen years and over 1,000 graduates later, LEEP continues to stand out among its peers. We offer the nation’s best library and information science education. We value connection and collaboration. We push the boundaries of what is possible—and  encourage our students to do the same.
