Cohort Lead Program

The Leadership Certificate Program is designed to provide students with a customized experience to help develop leadership skills in a way that integrates leadership education, reflection, and experience over multiple semesters. Students are assigned to a small group and a Cohort Lead for their first active semester in the program. The Cohort Lead is a peer-mentor who has knowledge of the Leadership Certificate Program and is invested in helping students be successful in the program. Cohort Leads meet with their students three times a semester, and engage in regular communication.

Cohort Lead recruitment takes place at the end of each semester. If you are interested in serving as a Cohort Lead volunteer, please e-mail leadershipcertificate@illinois.edu
