The Institute for Leadership Advancement (ILA) was established in 2001 to develop values-based leaders that serve their communities and organizations. ILA instills leadership capabilities, layered on top of the student's academic major, that promote self-development, effective communication, team work, innovation, and adaptability in a changing, global environment. ILA courses are academically based with an added focus on developing leadership skills beyond the classroom — through service-learning initiatives. Our certificate programs aim to develop leaders who are well trained and embrace ILA's core values of responsibility, stewardship, excellence, integrity, and purpose.

“Leader” was a label that always seemed to apply to Adrian Obleton. He had all the qualities: Charisma, intelligence, compassion, a desire to help. Adding to that, he’ll soon have the certificate, as he’s set to graduate as a member of the Leonard Leadership Scholars Class of 2017.
