The curriculum for each program are built with learning outcomes focused on addressing the competencies from the Illinois Model of Leadership

I-Programs are delivered by trained facilitators to assist in shaping the experience and learning environment of the programs. Like all ILC programs & services, these programs are offered to UIUC students at no additional cost. These programs are provided multiple times throughout the academic year.
