Joining iLEAD

Who Should Join

Participants in iLEAD are UNMC faculty who have a vested interest and desire to expand their leadership skills. This academy of scholars includes faculty from the Colleges of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health, as well as the Graduate College.

How to Join

To participate in the iLEAD program, you may be nominated by your supervisor or submit your application independently. Enrollment is limited to support a highly interactive program format. There is a cost to participate in iLEAD. 

The next iLEAD program will launch in fall 2022. The enrollment period is scheduled to open in December 2021.

What to Expect After You Join

This is a one-year commitment. At the beginning of the program, you'll evaluate your personal skills, talents and behaviors. Then, building on this knowledge, you'll attend didactic sessions and practice in simulations and small group exercises. Finally, you'll apply your newly learned abilities in UNMC-focused projects.

Because of iLEAD's progressive design, you are required to attend all of the scheduled meetings (including the graduation event) without interruption by traditional work duties. Once the program has started, there are no refunds for participants.
