iLead: Leadership My Way

Leadership workshop / iLead workshop at UC San Diego's Center for Student Involvement, Communication and Leadership 

About iLead

iLead is a drop-in workshop program open to all UC San Diego students. We offer a new schedule of workshops every quarter where students have the flexibility to choose sessions on topics that align with their interests and availability. Our workshops are facilitated by the Communication & Leadership team and various staff from different departments across campus. Some workshop topics include: identifying values, facilitating EDI conversations, leading effective meetings, public speaking, and self advocacy. 

Receive a stamp for each session you attend; 6 stamps earn you a certificate of completion and 10 stamps earn you validation on your Co-Curricular Record! Your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) will be updated upon completion of the program.


  • iLead Orientations occur every quarter during Week 2 
  • Workshops are hosted between Weeks 3 – 8 
  • All workshops include interactive content and activities
  • We offer both in-person and virtual workshops

Q: Which platform are we using for Virtual iLead workshops?

A: We are using Zoom to deliver the workshops. Students are encouraged to activate their Zoom accounts via their UCSD email to be able to register for each virtual iLead workshop.


Q: Do I need to attend all of the iLead workshops to complete the program?

A: No. You can attend any session that aligns with your interests and schedule.


Q:  Can I roll-over any stamps from the last academic year to this academic year? Can I accumulate my stamps until next quarter, Fall 2023?

A: No. Unfortunately, iLead is a one academic year-long program. For example, Fall 2022 to Spring 2023.


Q: How should I keep track of my stamps and attendance since it is now virtual?

A: At the moment, participants who were present for the full duration of their iLead workshop will receive an iLead stamp email confirmation. For workshops taking place Friday-Thursday, virtual stamp emails will be sent out each Friday following the workshop.


Q: I couldn't join the workshop. Why does it say the meeting is locked?

A: Out of respect for our iLead presenters and participants, we ask you to please be on time and stay for the full duration of the workshop to receive your digital stamp. We lock the meeting room after 10 minutes of the start time. We believe student learning and growth is valuable and being able to attend the full workshop allows for the most enriching experience.  


Q: Why do some workshops on the schedule say "join" and others say "register?" I thought I needed to register for individual workshops to get a stamp. Some workshops do not allow me to register because they link directly to the Zoom meetings.

A: Some of the iLead workshops are hosted by other departments, so you will just join without needing to register through us. There will be a C&L team member to introduce the workshop as part of our iLead program and will keep track of the attendance of participants.
