Learning Assistants (LAs) are now being used in smaller, advanced courses, often with specialized populations, not just in large introductory STEM classes.  In this workshop, we describe the use and impact of LAs in courses throughout our undergraduate physics curriculum at Boston University.  We will engage participants in the workshop to help identify advanced courses in their institution for using LAs, as well as effective approaches to targeting LA candidates for these courses.  We will discuss how to recruit and support faculty teaching these upper-division courses in a reformed, LA-supported format, and work with participants to develop a plan to assist them in implementing these objectives.  Finally, we will discuss the important roles the PhysTEC program and Teacher-in-Residence have in creating a supportive environment for LAs in advanced courses and thus in building a vibrant, vertical learning community among our undergraduate majors.
