The NSLS is the nation's largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by their college for membership based on either academic standing or demonstrated leadership potential. Less than 5% of students nationwide receive nomination to participate. Recognition as an exemplary student exceeding the criteria for membership is a prestigious honor.
In addition to honorable distinction, the NSLS provides a step-by-step program for members to build their leadership skills through participation at their campus or online. Upon completion of the program, members receive their leadership certificate and take their place among the top student leaders at their campus and across the country. Members are able to list their affiliation on all statements of personal accomplishment, including their resume and digital profiles on employment sites such as Linkedin, Glassdoor, etc.
Membership provides access to benefits including scholarships and awards, exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment through an online job bank, and discounts on computers, textbooks, grad school prep courses, insurance, and much more.
