Celebrating Spring 2024 NSLS Inductions

Inspiring Leadership and Changing the World

We are thrilled to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our newly inducted NSLS members this spring. Induction marks a significant milestone, signifying the culmination of dedication, hard work, and a commitment to leadership excellence.

The journey to NSLS induction involves completing a series of meticulously designed steps to enhance personal and professional growth. Upon accepting their nomination, members embarked on the Steps to Induction: Orientation, Leadership Training Day, Speaker Broadcasts, and Success Networking Teams. Each step integrates our leadership development curriculum, ensuring a comprehensive and enriching experience.

From Orientation, where members are introduced to their campus chapter, to Leadership Training Day, focusing on self-discovery and goal-setting, to Speaker Broadcasts featuring world-renowned leaders, and Success Networking Teams that foster accountability and peer support, every stage builds toward achieving NSLS-exclusive benefits. The journey culminates in the Induction ceremony, a celebration, and an official welcome into the NSLS community.
