The LDL Connects in-person gathering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus organized by Learning Design and Leadership graduate students and alumni is a wonderful opportunity to make progress on your milestones, experience the beautiful Urbana-Champaign campus, and connect with faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

We thank everyone who assisted with last year’s gathering and those who attended! We can’t wait to gather together again this year.

Please contact Kara Francis [kstucki@illinois.edu] with any questions.
