We know that each student has unique interests and talents to bring to their communities. Throughout your time as a resident here, we hope to highlight those strengths to help you achieve success at UD. We plan to do this through your participation in the Strengths Community!

CliftonStrengths is a great way to understand what you do well and how to apply those talents authentically and productively to succeed in your academic, career, and relationships at UD and beyond. Once you take the CliftonStrengths inventory, you can learn how to apply your Strengths to help set goals around time management, academics, career exploration, and leadership development.


All First-Year students who take the inventory will have access to resources including:


  • Workshops to understand the framework and benefits of a Strengths Based approach

  • Social events to help meet other students, discuss their Top 5 Strengths and make new connections

  • One on one meetings with a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach to discuss their  top 5 report and how to apply their strengths to achieve success at UD

  • Workshops geared towards  leadership development, academic success, and career exploration


Residence Life & Housing is part of the Division of Student Life, which contributes and facilitates critical learning and development within healthy, inclusive and supportive communities, so that all students may thrive at UD and beyond.
