Brookdale’s Chapter-The National Society of Leadership & Success

NSLS LogoWhat is The National Society of Leadership and Success?

The Society is the nation’s largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by Brookdale Community College for membership based on academic standing and leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction. With 509 chapters, the Society currently has 571,886 members nationwide.

In addition to honorable distinction, the Society provides a step-by-step program for members to build their leadership skills through participation at Brookdale Community College or online. Click here for more information on those steps.  Upon completion of the program, members receive their leadership certificate and take their place among the top student leaders at Brookdale and across the country. Members are able to list their affiliation on all statements of personal accomplishment, including 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 discounts on computers, textbooks, grad school prep courses, insurance and much more.

NSLS FAQs This site features select video content from some of the Society’s greatest guest speakers — successful people with brilliant minds who also exhibit incredible leadership. By showcasing snippets of longer video clips (reserved for members only), we aim to familiarize our audience with the Society’s core belief, “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.” We also aim to highlight the main benefits of membership: community action, volunteerism, personal growth and strong leadership from its chapters and members. This site features the latest research findings and news on 21st century career topics like tech, entrepreneurship, economy, politics, law and more. Our team will post frequent leadership content as it relates to college students and graduates, creating a community where like-minded, success-oriented individuals come together to learn and support each other. We aim to make this site an invaluable resource for those seeking out practical tools for leadership and success.
