The Office of Student Transitions embarked upon its second pilot year of implementing Gallup's CliftonStrengths for Students into First-Year Seminar (FYS) courses. Strengths development focuses on improving self-awareness and well-being, giving students a tool to understand how to leverage their natural talents for success. Nearly half of the FYS instructors chose to integrate Strengths activities and development into their courses. Final data indicated an increase in self-awareness, confidence, and affirmation of major/career choices. Nearly 89% of pilot students said that Strengths should be implemented in all FYS courses.
