UIC Student Leadership and Civic Engagement is actively seeking student leaders to participate in the Fall 2018 IGNITE Leadership Experience.
IGNITE Leadership Experience – Participants
The IGNITE Leadership Experience is a seven-week exploratory leadership program designed to help first- and second-year undergraduate students gain leadership capacities and get involved at UIC. Participants meet weekly with a cohort & mentor and engage in questions about who they are and how they want to grow as a leader. IGNITE students will gain insight into the values, communication, and leadership competencies necessary for positive involvement at UIC.
Sessions for IGNITE participants begin Wednesday, September 19 and continue until October 31, 2018 from 4pm-6pm.
Applications for enrollment close September 12.

IGNITE Leadership Experience – Student Mentors
As engaged leaders, IGNITE mentors will help guide the leadership explorations of first- and second-year UIC students. The ideal mentor will have some leadership experience and, most importantly, be committed to engaging with leadership on a personal, academic, and professional level. IGNITE mentors will gain confidence in their interpersonal, facilitation, and advising skills—all critical areas of need for graduate school and the workforce.
Requirements for IGNITE Mentors:
- Must be a in at least your 2nd year at UIC.
- We are seeking involved students with a passion for helping other students find their place at UIC.
- Must commit to attend every IGNITE session on Wednesday nights from 3:45pm-6pm starting September 19 and ending October 31.
- Unfortunately, due to the nature of our program, if you have a class/work/personal conflict that overlaps with our program schedule, you are not eligible to apply for the program. Please consider applying next year!
