Gallup CliftonStrengths

CliftonStrengths is an online assessment tool used to discover and develop your greatest talents. Operated by Gallup, the well-known global analytics and advice firm, this 177-question assessment measures your natural patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving and categorizes them into the 34 CliftonStrengths themes.

Our office, along with multiple other units on campus, uses CliftonStrengths as a pairing tool to complement many of our programs, giving us a common language to help students and others better understand themselves and maximize their potential.

Common Experience: New Students

NC State University operates a Common Experience among all new students each year. CliftonStrengths is the Common Experience for 2021-2022, and we are excited that students will continue to have access to this assessment tool! The New Student Programs website contains more information about the Common Experience, including workshops, videos, and more information about the assessment.

Coaching and More Resources

Our office has three certified CliftonStrengths coaches who are able to help you get connected with the assessment, process your reports, better understand the language and definitions of Strengths, and more. Contact the members of our team to request a consultation.
