Hastings College is committed to using the CliftonStrengths-based approach to enhance overall well-being & engagement on campus. CliftonStrengths will help students to identify and overcome challenges, experience a sense of belonging on-campus and equipped for life after Hastings College.

Do you ever wonder why you make certain choices? Why do you what you do? Why you like certain things? Why you are better at some things than others?There’s a reason. It’s your talents.

The CliftonStrengths 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. The assessment is utilized campus-wide in classrooms and communities, as a way for students to better understand what they and others have to offer.
