2020 LA Research Symposium

Friday, November 13

We encourage folks who are active or interested in research on the LA Model to apply to the LA Research Symposium. The 2020 Virtual LA Research Symposium will provide opportunities for colleagues to give and receive feedback on research projects related to the LA Model, and create and strengthen connections and collaborations within our community. Space is limited for the Symposium and applications are due on Sept 14th.

2020 International LA Conference

November 14-16

Join us for a different virtual conference experience—PLAN TO ENGAGE! This is NOT a "sit and get" conference and, just like our students, we grow and learn more when we interact. In this flipped conference, participants will:

  • Learn on their own by viewing pre-recorded content about the basics of the LA Model
  • Discuss ideas with colleagues and LAs during synchronous sessions
  • Develop/enrich their LA Programs through interactive workshops
  • Live network with others during informal social interactions in unique conference spaces
  • Plan for the future of their LA Programs

More Information, please visit

Regional Workshops

Regional workshops are typically offered in the spring and summer, at universities throughout the United States. Topics covered are similar to those at the International Conference, but local specializations are highlighted.

Site Visits

You can request a site visit by emailing the Leadership Council and describing your specific needs and contexts. Virtual and in-person site visits are available. LAgents close to you or familiar with your context and issues can help you address your needs.
