The Inspired Leadership Initiative (ILI) is a program for accomplished individuals from all disciplines (business, non-profit, and academic, to name a few) who have completed their chosen careers and wish to spend an academic year at Notre Dame—taking advantage of the University's vast array of resources—to pivot to their next stage in life.

ILI fellows will have the unique opportunity to reflect on their past experience and shape the direction of their future, while also sharing their wisdom, experience, and knowledge with the Notre Dame community.

Nominate an accomplished individual with the potential to be an ILI fellow.
