Learning Communities are popular at universities across the country. Several institutions spearhead the Learning Community movement to promote new Learning Community concepts.
One of the leading institutions in this area is Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. They host an annual National Summer Institute to explore ways to strengthen learning community programs at colleges and universities across the nation.

In June 2008, WSU sent a team to the National Summer Institute for Learning Communities (NSILC). During the conference, the team attended lectures and workshops and worked with learning community experts from around the country to develop a two-year plan for WSU learning communities. An overview is available.
There are several other national conferences that focus on learning communities. More information on some events of note are available at the following websites: www.novemberlearning.com and uc.iupui.edu
