National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS)

This honor society offers students the opportunity to join a nationally recognized organization that provides access to some of the country’s top leaders. There is an application process for this leadership opportunity. Students may either apply or be invited to join and there are membership dues.

NSLS, Sigmi Alpha Pi, is the largest collegiate leadership honor society in the U.S. with nearly 500 chapters and more than 525,000 members nationwide. Membership is available to a limited number of students. In addition to honoring excellence, NSLS provides members access to a five-step leadership program on campus. During this process, you will develop skills that will give you success beyond the classroom. The programming offered will give you access to education from some of America’s top leaders including Rudy Giuliani, Arianna Huffington, Common, Carly Fiorina, and many others. There are also scholarship and other awards available. As an active member, you will have to pay membership dues. Visit www.societyleadership.org for more information.

To be nominated for the society, students need a GPA of at least 2.75, be involved in at least one campus activity and have completed at least 15 credit hours. Upon accepting the nomination and paying one-time membership dues, students need to complete three requirements to qualify for induction. To be officially inducted, students complete an orientation day, attend leadership training day and three video presentations that consist of success networking team meetings and speaker broadcasts.
