The Strengths Initiative

The University of Tampa is committed not only to creating successful students, but to ensuring that this success extends out of the classroom, following our graduates into the real world. With that in mind Student Transition and Persistence has launched The University of Tampa Strengths® Initiative. A Strengths-based approach focuses on what one does right instead of what one does wrong. We believe that this Strengths-based approach leads to higher levels of student engagement, increased self-awareness, and a better understanding of how to interact with others.

By infusing this Strengths focus on our campus we seek to improve retention, graduation rates and the success of our alumni. By building their talents into strengths we want to help students succeed in the areas of:

  • Academics
  • Leadership
  • Relationships
  • Engagement
  • and Careers

This “Strengths@UT” page is designed to help The University of Tampa’s students, staff, faculty, parents and guests learn more about the Strengths initiative here on campus, and to provide resources to help you obtain and understand your Top Five Talent Themes and how you can positively develop them to maximize your potential.
