The Consortium of Illinois Learning Communities, formed in 2002, seeks to promote and support the development of learning communities in Illinois colleges and universities. The CILC sponsors an annual Best Practices Symposium, offers expertise to institutions seeking to develop learning communities, and provides a means of facilitating collaboration between member institutions to address their challenges.

This website was established to provide information about the consortium, as well as serve as a forum where faculty and administrators from member institutions can share information about how to plan, teach, and promote learning communities.
