The Illinois Leadership Center creates opportunities for students, faculty and staff to develop and enhance their leadership skills. Our programs and services provide leadership training through both academic coursework and experimental programming. We help strengthen the skill set essential to success within your communities, organizations and relationships.

The experience you need for life

At Illinois, we believe that all students are capable of exercising leadership, which can be learned and implemented by anyone interested in making a contribution to society and shaping a more positive future.

The Center teaches leadership from a skills-development model that focuses on four main areas: self, interpersonal, organizational and group and, finally, transitional.  Our core programming consists of our i-programs, leadership workshops, the Leadership Certificate Program, the Leadership Library and a Minor in Leadership Studies. It is through this outstanding programming that we are able to provide the experience you need for life.
