Welcome to Strengths at Cal Poly

Strengths is a great tool to help members of the campus community identify and build upon their naturally occurring talents. By discovering, developing, and applying your strengths, you can achieve academic, personal, and career success.

CliftonStrengths® for Students  is a development and engagement program designed by Gallup to help college students, educators, faculty and staff members achieve academic, career, and personal success.

What is a strength?

A strength is the ability to consistently provide near-perfect performance in a specific activity. The key to building a strength is to identify your dominant talents, then complement them by acquiring knowledge and skills pertinent to the activity.

Success comes from investing in your talents!

Bring strengths to you!
