SLIG 2021 Updates

The updated SLIG 2021 schedule is out!
Since we announced that SLIG 2021 would be held virtually, we have been busy behind the scenes considering just what that could look like. With time to work with, we decided to get creative and spread out the fun!

SLIG 2021 will now encompass three weeks in January, with courses offered during two of those weeks. While meeting virtually can't quite replace the in-person environment, each week will feature some of what you have come to expect of the "SLIG experience" – networking, special events, workshops, and door prizes.

SLIG 2021 will now follow this format:
  • Week 1: January 10-15 – seven courses
  • Week 2: January 24-29 – seven courses
  • Interim week – technology day, professional workshops
Special and Commemorative Events will be announced at a later date. Students may register for a course in either week or both. All students, including those attending the Academy for Professionals beginning in February, will be able to participate in interim-week offerings. Registration for SLIG 2021 will open on August 8, 2020, at 10:00 am Mountain Time.
