Strengths Advisory Board

As a strengths-based environment, we encourage our students to do what they do best every day. Our goal is to provide the training and tools useful for discovering one's talents, developing those talents into strengths and applying those strengths in the classroom and beyond.

To facilitate these efforts, we have a Strengths Advisory Board comprised of various constituents who meet regularly to promote the implementation, training and assessment of strengths-based programs throughout campus.

We invite everyone in our community to explore the strengths-based approach in their pursuit of academic, personal and career goals and welcome questions, comments, suggestions and participation.
