Don't forget to join our Facebook group


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....


Previous hosts have charged $250 per person, which included meetings, meals and entertainment. Because of the unique logistics of this event, Georgia Tech’s VentureLab has opted to not charge this year, but to experiment with a “pay your own way” model.

The conference locations are all on Georgia Tech’s campus.
