LEAP Symposium is Mount Holyoke's premier showcase of student summer work, organized by and for Mount Holyoke students.

From labs and law offices, embassies and businesses, archives, television studios, farms and rural communities around the world, students return from their summer experiences and reflect critically about what they have learned. At LEAP, this is translated into panel presentations for a student audience who see a model of what they can aspire to accomplish themselves.

Students planning to present at LEAP 2017 are required to enroll in COLL 211 Reflecting Back: Connecting Internship and Research to your Liberal Arts Education.

In the summer 2017, MHC provided students with funds to pursue internships and research in 42 countries. We recognize the individuals who provided generous support, through which MHC is able to sustain vibrant, intellectual opportunities for students in every discipline and professional field.
