10,000+ Boilermakers have taken the CliftonStrengths for Students Talent Assessment!

A key objective of the Roger C. Stewart LEAP (Leadership Experience At Purdue) is to encourage first-year, undergraduate students to be intentional about their leadership and professional development during their time at Purdue.  Purdue has partnered with Gallup to become a strengths-based campus to meet this objective.  All incoming 1st year and transfer students have free access to the CliftonStrengths for Students® online talent assessment and Strengths resources via the myStrengths online portal (For myStrengths web portal instructions click HERE).  Students are introduced to the concept in the pre-arrival information and during orientation programs. Students can sign up for The First-Year Leadership Seriess to explore their Top 5 Signature Themes and develop them into strengths, so that they can apply them in their academic, social, and professional lives by registering here.

The CliftonStrengths for Students Talent assessment, based on the concept of intentionally developing your strengths rather than your weaknesses, identifies students’ top five strengths from a list of 34 talents. CliftonStrengths is used across the world in large and small businesses and non-profit organizations.  The myStrengths portal provides resources for exploring your top 5 strengths and how to leverage your strengths to overcome challenges and reach your own personal, academic, and career goals.  For more information visit, the CliftonStrengths for Students-StrengthsQuest website.
