NATIONAL SOCIETY FOR LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESS
The Office of Student Involvement is happy to announce the establishment of a Kutztown University chapter of The National Society for Leadership and Success (NSLS). NSLS is the largest collegiate leadership honor society in the United States, with more than 500 chapters and half a million members. Students are selected for membership based on either academic standing or leadership potential, and instructions on how to participate have been sent to all invited students. To date, we have more than 200 students signed up to participate. The student executive board, led by KU chapter president Cierra Davis, is planning the events and activities associated with the membership and induction process. The membership gives students access to resources and opportunities that will build their skills and support their development as leaders on campus, in our local community, and beyond. By having a chapter here at KU, the campus gains exclusive access to the live streamed broadcast of high-end, nationally known speakers three times each semester. The speaker names and details of these broadcasts will be shared in early August. Please join me in supporting these students as they establish an NSLS chapter at KU. For more information about NSLS, please see this link: https://www.societyleadership.org/.
