National Society of Leadership and Success

SVSU is a member of this national organization, and our chapter is open by invitation only to selected students. Students who have demonstrated academic accomplishment and leadership potential and meet set criteria will be issued a nomination letter at the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters. The Society offers life-changing lectures from the nation's leading presenters along with a community where likeminded, success-oriented individuals come together to help one another succeed.

Students receive a wide range of lifetime benefits upon being inducted into the Society. Benefits include scholarship and award opportunities, resume enhancement, access to previous speaker broadcasts, discounts from corporate partners, and a personalized letter of recommendation. Members pay a one-time registration fee of $85 which includes a lifetime membership upon being inducted. Inductions will be held in April each academic year.

Members are able to engage in social events, community service opportunities, and other leadership development activities through their involvement with NSLS. In 2014, our chapter was named Chapter of the Year.
