As part of the first-year experience at Creighton, all freshmen students are provided the opportunity to take the CliftonStrengths for Students assessment. Created by Gallup, CliftonStrengths for Students analyzes the results of a survey to identify the top five strengths of an individual, from a list of 34 total strengths. These strengths highlight natural inclinations to success.
CliftonStrengths for Students programming begins in October. On October 22, freshmen will receive a code to access their Strengths Assessment, but can get early access at a launch party on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Harper Center’s Hixson-Lied Auditorium. Students have until February 1 to complete the assessment. Sophomores, juniors and seniors have the opportunity to attend a Gallup Strengths speaker on November 25 at 8 p.m. in the Hixson-Lied Auditorium.
Strengths Week sessions, held in February, introduce students to their strengths. The spring semester will contain a variety of Strengths programming to dive into cultivating a richer awareness for each student. Campus partners of this new program include the Department of Residential Life, the John P. Fahey Career Center, the Creighton EDGE, Campus Ministry and more. Students can attend a Strengths Kickoff event, Wednesday, February 19 in the Skutt Student Center Ballroom at 5 p.m.
