ELLC Roundtable

The Technology Entrepreneur Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign recently hosted the fourth annual

Entrepreneurial Living-Learning Community Roundtable at the University of Florida in Gainesville on Thursday, June 4 - Friday, June 5, 2015.


This program was created in 2012 by the Innovation Living-Learning Community at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in order to give leaders of ELLCs the opportunity to gather in one spot for shared discussion and networking opportunities. Staff from campuses that are considering starting ELLCs are also welcome and encouraged to join us! The content of the Roundtable is very participant-driven, with lots of opportunities to explore program successes and help answer each other’s questions....


There is no fee to attend this event, but participants are responsible for providing their own transportation and accommodations. This conference is open to University administration, faculty and staff.
