- Gallup Called to Coach Webcast Series
- Season 2, Strengths Spotlight
- Find out how students at the University of Minnesota have the opportunity to discover their CliftonStrengths and then to learn more about and develop them.
On a recent Called to Coach Strengths Spotlight, we spoke with Robin Stubblefield, Director of Student Engagement and Co-Curricular Learning at the University of Minnesota, to find out how she helped incorporate strengths into the campus.
The University of Minnesota began by developing a three-year pilot plan to give first-year students an access code to take the CliftonStrengths assessment when they arrived on campus. Within a year, the university also gave access codes to students transferring to the university.
The university's ultimate goal was to positively impact student retention, graduation rates, and overall student success and well-being. Robin knew that, by giving incoming students access to the CliftonStrengths assessment, it would provide a powerful way for students to grow together through their strengths.
At the University of Minnesota, the strengths journey doesn't stop with handing out CliftonStrengths access codes. Whether it is in the classroom, career counseling, or in the residence halls, students have opportunities throughout their college careers to learn about and develop their strengths.
Robin Stubblefield's Top 5 CliftonStrengths are Relator, Communication, Connectedness, Ideation and Restorative.
