The proven success of its cohort-based programs has led John Jay College to launch Linking Experience, Academics, and Practice (LEAP). The new cohort-based program marks the first time all incoming freshman students at the College will have access to multi-year cohort program support. LEAP will use the best and most effective strategies from existing cohorts at the College, such as intensive advisement, and apply them to its broader range of students in the hopes of increasing retention, momentum, and graduation rates.
