I-Programs

i-Programs have been the cornerstone initiative of the lllinois Leadership® Center (ILC) since opening our doors. Designed as six-hour seminars (typically on Saturdays), these programs focus on a particular aspect of leadership practice.

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

 Like all ILC programs & services, these programs are offered to Illinois students at no additional cost. These programs are provided multiple times throughout the academic year.
