Learn more about the 2019 ILI

The Interfaith Leadership Institute (ILI) is the largest gathering of students and educators with a commitment to American religious pluralism. Each year, hundreds of people who care about the future of our religiously diverse society converge in Chicago to learn, train, share, and get inspired to bring the movement for interfaith cooperation back to their campuses and communities.  Over the course of three days, participants learn to bridge divides and forge friendships across lines of religious and worldview differences. Come to the ILI with the passion to bring people together and leave equipped with the knowledge and skills to make it happen.

Training Tracks

Introductory and advanced training tracks are designed to support those new to this work by laying the foundation for interfaith leadership, and providing advanced skills in topics ranging from strategic planning to navigating tricky challenges and more. Learn more about our student and educator tracks.

Plenary Sessions

Plenary sessions feature experienced leaders and their stories of engaging difference in American life. Attendees will have the power to guide these conversations by choosing discussion topics and important questions at the beginning of the gathering. Look for updates later this year about our 2019 keynote speakers.

Unconference and Program Showcases

On Saturday afternoon, participants have the opportunity discuss topics and themes not covered in our Training Tracks. Dive into the nitty gritty of campus interfaith work, share promising practices for advancing interfaith leadership practices, and discuss the intersections of interfaith cooperation with various social movements.
