Q: Are iLead workshops virtual or in person?

A: iLead offers in-person and virtual workshops. For in person workshops, the location is listed on the schedule and flyers. For virtual workshops, you will need to register to receive the Zoom link. Registration links are included on the schedule and flyers.


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? 

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


Q: Do I need to track my workshop attendance and stamps?

A: A: No. Our team tracks your attendance. Sign in with our team at the start of each workshop to ensure you receive a digital stamp. Students must stay for the duration of the workshop to receive a stamp.


Q: Why do some workshops on the schedule say "join" and others say "register?" 

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.


Q: What if I attended an iLead workshop and did not receive a digital stamp?

A: Please email our team at and inform us you are missing a stamp. Be sure to include the workshop details such as event name, date, and time.
