Building on your strengths

Gain confidence and enhance your learning experiences as you build an understanding of your natural talents and strengths. By taking the CliftonStrengths for Students assessment and processing your personal report, you’ll be empowered to reach your full potential. This new framework provides self-awareness on how you can best contribute in team and leadership settings and the language to articulate to employers what makes you unique.

Discovering your strengths and how they shape your relationships with other people — and theirs with you — makes you a valuable team member within your classes and in your future career.

"Because of Clifton Strengths, I have been able to understand myself and my teammates more. ... This creates a space for open discussion, which is essential for success before starting any group project."
