HuskyLEAD-Strengths Series

What is HuskyLEAD-Strengths Series?

The HuskyLEAD-Strengths Series will help students learn how to develop and apply their strengths for success in college and beyond.

The purpose is to identify and maximize the talent of college students to guide their personal, professional, and leadership development through the use and application of strengths-based sciences.

After identifying their strengths through the CliftonStrengths assessment, students learn how to leverage their strengths for specific outcomes including academics, major and career awareness, and engagement and wellbeing in college. The workshops help students understand their true potential and develop an individualized success plan to boost self-awareness, academic success and career confidence.

"When students not only know their strengths—but more importantly, apply them—the effect on their lives is transformational.
