Strengths-Based Initiatives

University of Arkansas is committed to the success of students and staff members on our campus. The Division of Student Affairs mission is to "Strengthen Students For Success" as a result, the Office of Strengths Based Initiatives was created. The office provides workshops, training, coaching, advising and programming that helps students identify and apply their individual strengths for academic, personal and career success.


The Office of Strengths-Based Initiatives (SBI) cultivates learning environments that allow students and staff members to discover, define, and develop their talents and strengths to achieve success. Through the utilization of the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment and strengths-based approach, the office engages and promotes self-awareness, self-efficacy, and self-authorship for students and staff members at the University of Arkansas. We are committed to "Strengthening YOU for Success."

All first year students receive a free code to take the Clifton StrengthsFinder™ assessment before their arrival to campus. If you do not have your code, please contact strengths@uark.edu .

As a non-first year undergraduate student, you can purchase an individual code directly from Gallup at www.strengthsquest.com/schoolaccess. This will provide you access to the StrengthsQuest.com website and the full StrengthsQuest book once you register. and complete the assessment.
