The Ignite program focuses on skills necessary for effective group and organization development. Students who participate can expect to develop approaches to leading change initiatives, learn about systems thinking, and coalition building. At Ignite, students will work with other students to develop a plan for their own change initiative.
i-Programs have been the cornerstone initiative of the lllinois Leadership® Center (ILC) since opening our doors. Designed as six-hour seminars, these programs focus on a particular aspect of leadership practice.
Blended i-Programs require the completion of online modules related to the i-Program curriculum prior to the program. Modules will be completed online via Canvas and will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete. Students will also attend a 2-hour in-person discussion session, at a location on campus, in which they will participate in activities and discussion related to the i-Program content with facilitators and peers. Completion of both the online modules and attending the entirety of the in-person discussion section are required to receive credit for the program.

Registration Closes: January 31st
