30,000+ Boilermakers have taken the CliftonStrengths for Students Talent Assessment!

A key objective of the Roger C. Stewart Leadership Experience at Purdue (LEAP) 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 first-year and transfer students have free access to the CliftonStrengths for Students® online talent assessment and Strengths resources via the myStrengths online portal. Students are introduced to the concept in their pre-arrival information and during orientation programs. Students can sign up for three different workshops to learn more about themselves and their Strengths:

  • Strengths 101 - We'll dive into who you are as an individual and look at how you can find success by utilizing and leveraging your Top 5 Strengths. Snacks will be provided.
  • Strengths 201 – This team-centered session takes a look at the Strengths of others and how you can intentionally work with them through their Strengths. Snacks will be provided.
  • Strengths 301 - What do your Strengths mean? We'll focus on how to communicate about your Strengths and how they are beneficial to you and others. Snacks will be provided.  
  • Strengths Break – Come take a break with us! Spend 30 minutes chatting about your Top 5 Strengths and leave with new insight into how you can continue to use your Strengths in your day-to-day life. Snacks will be provided.

Registration for all workshops for Spring 2020 will open in January 2020. 

The CliftonStrengths for Students® talent assessment, based on the concept of intentionally developing your strengths rather than your weaknesses, identifies students’ Top 5 Signature Themes 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 Themes 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.
