Leadership programs

National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS)

The NSLS is the largest leadership honor society in the United States. Our NSLS chapter at WSU Vancouver was started in 2020. Our local chapter is part of the national organization with 700+ chapters and over 1.4 million members. Students are selected based on exemplary academic achievement. As of 2021 we have 219 members. The NSLS leadership program teaches the interpersonal skills that employers seek to give you an edge in the job market. For more information check out our Coug Presence page.
