Program: Illinois Leadership Center at the University of Illinois
Sara Thompson, Director: Illinois Leadership Center
Esther Lamarre, Program Manager
The Illinois Leadership Center at the University of Illinois provides students, faculty and staff with opportunities to develop, or enhance, essential leadership skills. Programs and services provide leadership training through both academic coursework and experiential programming. The center provides the ‘experience you need for life’ to be successful in community, organizations, and relationships.
The Leadership Center blends leadership study in the classroom with real life experience in the business field.
Emphasis in the “5I Program” to develop students in leadership skills:
Insight: Self Awareness
Intersect: Groups & Listening Skills
Ignite: How to lead change in organizations
Imprint: Transitions, networking and sourcing mentors
Integrity: Leading with purpose and making sound decisions
The Leadership Center looks for, trains and develops “coaches” from the local community. Currently the center is working with 200 coaches who provide 1-2 hours per month and 3 to 4 meetings per semester with assigned students (and not all meeting s are necessarily in person).
The Leadership Center has an interactive web site including information on becoming a leadership coach, the requirements and benefits of actively working with this one of a kind University initiative.
