National Leadership Institute


The National Leadership Institute has matured from a four-day leadership conference to a year round development and training initiative. NLI encompasses the National Leadership Conference, six Regional Leadership Conferences, and leadership enhancement activities and workshop through the year for all members.

NSBE NLI Fellows Program

The NSBE National Leadership Institute Fellows Program, formerly known as the NSBE Shadow Initiative is here to serve as the premier leadership development program for NSBE members.

The NLI Fellows program will provide participants with the chance to get FREE leadership Training from October until April, while diligently working around each participant’s need for focus on achieving excellence within their academic studies.

This year, the program’s first and foremost purpose remains the same, which is to serve as an avenue for NSBE collegiate members to gain deeper access to leadership executive board positions within the organization. The program’s intent will be to inspire leadership and cultivate each member’s keen and innate potential for life success all in the hopes of allowing their success to in turn directly influence growth and prosperity within NSBE as a whole.
