International Student Leadership Institute


In 1966, (Rev.) Thomas E. Chambers, C.S.C., Ph.D., established the International Student Leadership Institute, also known as I.S.L.I., at the University of Notre Dame.
The organization began when a group of Notre Dame students met with a group of young, potential leaders from a Midwestern high school in order to enhance and expand their leadership aptitude. From this, the organization developed its present scope of operations, which includes exceptional and talented students throughout the United States and Canada. As a graduate of I.S.L.I., you will become a part of the organization that has helped thousands of participants become strong leaders in today’s society.
