National Society of Leadership and Success

National Society of Leadership and Success


The NSLS is the largest leadership honor society in the United States. Our NSLS chapter at University of Dayton was started in 2015. Our local chapter is part of the national organization with 700+ chapters and over 1.4 million members.  Students are selected based on leadership experience and potential. As of 2021 we have welcomed 2,430 members.

Upon completion of the five-step program, members receive their leadership certificate to mark this honorable distinction and take their place among the top student leaders on campus and across the country.  Members are able to list their affiliation on all statements of personal accomplishment, including their University of Dayton co-curricular transcript and their resume.  

Membership is for life and provides access to benefits including scholarships and awards, exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment through an online job bank, and access to private networking events.

Induction into the society requires completion of:

  • Orientation Session
  • Leadership Training Day
  • Leadership Broadcasts (3)
  • Success and Networking Team Meetings (3)
  • Online Reflections
