IGNITE Leadership Experience
What is IGNITE?
The IGNITE Leadership Experience is a fall semester leadership program for 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students designed to gain insight into personal values and leadership style. IGNITE is designed to be a springboard into involvement at UIC. It is sponsored by Campus Programs and Student Leadership Development and Volunteer Services.
It is the goal of the program to help you connect with people and activities on campus and in the community. These connections will assist you in developing and finding your ideal involvement during your time here and allow you to "Ignite your passion and spark a change" at UIC.
How do I participate?
Applications for fall 2014 participation will be available here in September. We are currently recruiting upperclassmen mentors to aid in the development of participants, while continuing to grow their own leadership skills. Mentors will work in pairs to facilitate discussions and personal growth in a small group of IGNITE participants. It is an expectation that mentors will share their knowledge, skills, and perspectives as leaders on campus to foster the growth of underclassmen students.

Can IGNITE count towards my UIC Experience certificate?
Yes! An IGNITE Theme is available as a UIC Experience certificate option and is only available to IGNITE participants and mentors. Through IGNITE, participants will automatically complete three of six required experiences and mentors will automatically complete four of six required experiences! Through involvement with IGNITE you could already be well on your way towards earning a UIC Experience Certificate. For more information on the UIC Experience, visit uicexperience.uic.edu.
