Register to complete the cliftonstrengths assessment

All students who register for Strengths Month will need to complete the online CliftonStrengths assessment (directions will be sent to you via email after your registration is complete) and attend a Strengths 101 workshop.

Strengths 101

Are you able to talk about your talents, what makes you uniquely YOU? For most of us this is uncomfortable because either we don't know or we can only vaguely describe what our unique talents are. Take advantage of this free opportunity to take the online CliftonStrengths assessment and attend a Strengths 101 workshop so that you can better understand and leverage your unique talents and gifts. Give us 60 minutes and we will help you become more self-aware and confident in the ways you can uniquely contribute to our campus community!

4. Team Strengths Workshops:

Are you a part of an executive board or team that could benefit from a strengths based approach? Let one of our experienced staff facilitate a workshop for your team. The goal of a team workshop is two fold: to help each individual team member learn more about their unique talents, what they will bring to and need from the group and explore how the team can function more productively by understanding and utilizing the talents of each team member.
