The National Society of Leadership and Success = Sigma Alpha Pi

The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) is the nation's largest leadership honor society in the United States. Members of the USF chapter are engaged in a leadership development program that helps them achieve personal growth and career success, and it empowers them to have a positive impact in their communities.

The leadership development program prepares students for leadership in academics and the workplace. The program involves participation in four activities:

  1. Orientation and leadership training day focuses on exploring challenges, recognizing strengths, identifying passions and setting up personal plans to initiate the changes needed to move forward as leaders.
  2. Success Networking Teams (SNT), consisting of small groups of students, meet throughout each semester to set individual goals and offer support to team members for achieving these goals. SNT meetings teach members the "soft skills" of leadership imperative to success in nearly any venture. Team members learn to work within a team framework, provide peer coaching, set and achieve goals along specific timelines and hold themselves and others accountable for results.
  3. Leadership speaker events are delivered live via the Internet to our campus. Nationally-known individuals deliver inspirational talks about their leadership and success journeys and how they turned their dreams into reality and found success in their lives.
  4. Campus social events and community service activities provide opportunities for students to be active on campus and in the community.

Upon completion of the leadership development program, members become fully inducted into the NSLS and may list their involvement on their resumes. They also become eligible for additional benefits and scholarships due to their membership status. Once membership is attained, it is a lifetime benefit and does not expire upon graduation from college.
