The Inspired Leadership Initiative is a one-year program, commencing in early 2018 and occurring annually thereafter. The program will provide selected fellows (and their spouses or life partners, as desired) the opportunity to attend the University of Notre Dame and have access to its world-class resources, both on the main campus and globally. The experience will begin with a period of discernment to ensure the path you follow is the right one, followed by an individually customized program that features the following elements:

  • Your own course of study tailored to meet specific outcomes desired by you as a¬†fellow (pursued under the guidance of a faculty advisor)
  • A core curriculum designed to provide exposure to the best of Notre Dame faculty and selected outside speakers across all disciplines
  • Access to elements that are distinctively Notre Dame, including international programs, community engagement, a unique approach to wellness and individualized coaching, and an invitation to spiritual enrichment

Importantly, ILI will also provide ample opportunity for fellows and their spouses/life partners to build lifelong relationships with members of their cohorts as well as the broader University community.

We seek participants who will be engaged in the program for the full academic year.
