About the National Society of Leadership and Success

The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) is an honor society with more than 200 college chapters. The society's mission is to build leaders who make a better world. The society is founded on the core beliefs that one can achieve one's dreams with the proper support and dedicated action and that we accomplish more together than we would achieve alone.

The society encourages community action, volunteerism, personal growth, and strong leadership from its chapters and members around the world.

There are two ways to join the National Society of Leadership and Success: by invitation or by completing the nomination form. If you have not been invited and would like to join, please visit this site to fill out the nomination form, and indicate Shelley Hintz as your recommending faculty member.
