Western Carolina University has an active outdoor program including kayaking. It's in a great area for all levels of whitewater.

Basecamp Cullowhee is the outdoor program. Here's their webpage with contact info:

There is little to no water in New Mexico most of the year. Start looking in the pacific north west. 100 whitewater runs within one hour of Portland. Boise doesn't look so bad either.

New Mexico might lack multiple consistent whitewater runs, but I used to be a lead instructor for one of the top 3 kayak schools in the state. That being said, I was teaching beginner and intermediate whitewater classes every weekend from March through October. They also have a strong student group and San Juan College takes their students all over the Rocky Mountains and West Coast for classes.

Although not exactly a kayaking destination, Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado is run by some pretty cool river rats! They have a great outdoor program with some out of the box opportunities to travel abroad for college credit. You might just make some friends for life there too.
When we quit believing in our corrupt political system, it will finally fall apart. REVOLUTION!!!

Canada has a few...

Thompson Rivers University has 5 levels of whitewater kayaking as well as rafting, mountaineering, and other adventure sports.
College Of the Rockies also has a few levels of whitewater kayaking in their mountain adventure studies

that is what we have out west, sure there are some more on the eastern side of the country.

good luck with the compilation.

University of Puget Sound

also known as UPS, or Puget Sound, we're a small liberal arts university that gives out a ton of financial aid, and has an awesome overall outdoor program. the white water kayak club has 20 boats of all kinds, about 20 active students each year, and over 40 paying student members (not to mention many alumni and community members that come to bi-weekly pool sessions!).
