i-Program Format Types

The ILC offers i-Programs in three formats: in-person, online, and hybrid.

In-Person

In-Person – Students attend a six-hour program and participate in activities and discussions with other students and facilitators in real life. There are no modules to complete before the in-person i-Programs. Students must attend the entirety of the in-person seminar to receive credit for the program. Dress code is casual (except for Imprint, where business casual is encouraged).

Online

Online – The ILC offers the Integrity i-Program fully online in a self-paced (asynchronous) format. This i-Program is completed on Canvas and takes approximately six hours to complete. Students must complete all modules associated with the program to receive credit.

Hybrid

Hybrid – Hybrid i-Programs require students to complete 3-4 hours of online Canvas modules followed by a 3-hour in-person discussion session. To receive credit for the program, online modules must be completed before the discussion section, and attendance for the entirety of the in-person portion is required.
