LIFE AS AN ILI FELLOW
Fellows have access to a full spectrum of classes across all the colleges, institutes, and centers. We recommend that fellows take two to four classes in areas they wish to pursue with help provided by faculty advisors who have a broad understanding of the academy. Lectures are scheduled each week for the cohort and organized in tracks intended to provide exposure to top faculty in subjects relevant to the arc of the year, in addition to interesting, relevant top outside speakers on topics of interest to our cohort. Fellows have found they want to spend meaningful time reading and studying in advance of the courses they are auditing to gain the most from these classes. This could range from a few hours per week to much more at your discretion. Fellows are invited to take full advantage of the many means to develop spiritual dimension, regardless of faith tradition. This could involve a spiritual mentor, self-discovery, theology courses, liturgies, or service work. Fellows have full access to all the cultural activities on campus, as well as the ability to hone or develop new passions in these areas through classes and workshops, or access to private practice rooms.
MUSIC, ARTS, AND THEATRE
There are many opportunities for intergenerational engagement with students and faculty.
Our fellows have found productive and valuable relationships with faculty that are mutually rewarding.
Our ILI fellows take advantage of and create opportunities to get to know one another and build community. They see each other as resources and friends as they share the journey, both during the ILI year and beyond. The Center for Social Concerns has generously offered us the ability to leverage their relationships with local, national, and global organizations, to do anything from offer expertise, to partner with student groups, to volunteering. Fellows may find they have a specific project they wish to develop during their year and accordingly will spend time on campus and off bringing a new mission or venture to fruition. Notre Dame has 26 Division I sports teams, with most of the teams ranked, affording fellows numerous opportunities to enjoy high quality sports both indoors and outdoors.
A luxury many of us do not afford ourselves which can lead to true and generative creative outcomes.
