The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) is an organization that aims to build leaders through a leadership development program. This program consists of an interactive leadership training day, speaker broadcasts from well-known industry leaders, and building successful networking teams. After completing the leadership development sequence, members are inducted into the society and given the option to advance their skills through participation on the executive board. Many of our members flourish all around campus by partaking in campus events, completing community service, and serving in leadership positions. While NSLS welcomes students from different majors, the psychology department has consistently been well-represented.

Last month, NSLS hosted a spring induction ceremony which consisted of 75 students; many of whom were psychology students. Additionally, Psychology Professor Dr. Virginia Iannone presented a keynote address that emphasized the importance of character development in leadership. Dr. Iannone was also recognized as an honorary member for her commitment to empowering and mentoring student leaders. As the former president of the Stevenson chapter of the NSLS and a senior psychology student, I found that some of the themes about leadership mentioned during the induction ceremony echoed a lot of the concepts that I have learned as a psychology major.

For the past 2.5 years, I have been serving as the President of NSLS. It has been my privilege to work closely with a diverse group of students. Our former vice president, LaDena Eames, is also a senior psychology student. Two of our newly appointed e-board members, Lauren Hudson and T'Niya Lawson, are also psychology students who have big goals of empowering fellow students to become leaders of the world. Looking back, our executive board has done an exceptional job in promoting the importance of leadership training.

Students may perhaps be wondering how they can be members. Students will receive invitations to join NSLS based on their student status and GPA. Students who are interested in learning more about NSLS may contact Lauren Hudson and/or T’Niya Lawson.

Active Minds is one of our nation’s premier nonprofit organizations that supports mental health awareness and education for students. Here at our Stevenson chapter, we are dedicated to changing the conversation and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health. This includes, but is not limited to, types of mental illnesses, histories of an individual that can lead to a change in mental health, and treatments. We as a club are devoted to saving lives and building a strong and impactful community to create a lasting change in how mental health is viewed. We believe that this can be done through education, research, and advocacy for those who need that support. We host a wide range of events throughout the semester to promote these concepts. Events include mental health tables and stress-less weeks, which are dedicated to decreasing stress and anxiety around midterms and finals week.

As described on the Active Minds website: “We believe no one should have to struggle alone. By empowering students to speak openly about mental health, we can reduce stigma, encourage help seeking, and prevent suicides”. Through Active Minds, we hope to open people’s minds and hearts to issues related to mental health.

Stevenson's own RISE hosted a self-defense class to empower women, instructed by Stevenson's very own Carol Zimmerman.The event was both exciting and educational. Students learned how to assimilate moves and how to escape them if needed. There was also discussion about the importance of being aware and what actions to take should someone become a target, focusing on what specifically makes young girls a target. Students met and associated with peers who they may not have known prior to the event, helping each other learn tactical moves. The event was such a success that RISE plans on hosting more.
