Program length

NGLI kicks-off with an opening retreat weekend (Friday-Saturday) at LUREC. After the kick-off, the group will meet once a month over the course of 17 months. Each meeting is a full day and takes place on Loyola's Water Tower Campus in downtown Chicago. We try our best to accommodate participants' schedules and aim for meeting dates that are convenient for everyone.


Participants of NGLI are paired with their own career coach. Along with the monthly on-campus group meetings, participants also meet monthly with their coach. Meetings are typically one hour long and may take place on-campus or someplace more convenient. Scheduling is arranged and agreed upon by the participant and their coach.
