The LEAP symposium would not be possible without the institutional endorsement of the offices of the President and the Provost, and the dedicated efforts and enthusiastic support of Art Center College of Design staff, faculty and students.
The LEAP symposium is made possible in part by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Surdna Foundation, along with our other generous supporters who are inspired by the intersection of design and social innovation.
