The Washington Center for Improving the Quality of Undergraduate Education is considered the resource center for learning community work. They host the National Summer Institute on Learning Communities each July and publish biannual editions of the Learning Communities Research & Practice journal. The LEARNCOM Listserv is the foremost mailing list for learning community practitioners.


National Learning Communities Conference

The National Learning Communities Conference (NLCC) takes place each year in early November and provides LC faculty and administrators the opportunity to get together to share their experiences, best practices, and research related to learning communities. TAMUCC is one of six schools on the NLCC Consortium and hosted the national conference in 2013. The NLCC will return to Corpus Christi in 2020.


Texas Learning Communities Consortium (TXLCC)

TAMUCC helped form the TXLCC in 2013 to provide an opportunity for learning community collaboration between schools across the state. The meetings are typically held in the spring. TAMUCC hosted the third annual TXLCC meeting in April 2016. The 2017 meeting was hosted by Texas State University in San Marcos.
