Strengths for Students

Gateway promotes a strengths-based experience to help students explore, value, and appreciate their unique talents and those of others. Using CliftonStrengths, students discover how they best approach learning and growth. They also learn to function more effectively in groups with diverse strengths, backgrounds, and experiences. Strengths enhance students' academic, personal, and professional development and success at Gateway and beyond. 

As a Strengths-based college, Gateway also offers many resources for students to further explore and develop their Strengths through hands-on workshops and reading materials from Gallup. Your Strengths journey as a Gateway Red Hawk starts here!
