Access Your Strengths

The Wilks Institute for Leadership and Service supports the Strengths journey of individuals, student organizations, and Student Life staff. Our services include supporting the purchase of Strengths codes with the education discount, individual coaching, and team coaching. Strengths workshops and coaching sessions are available on a limited basis, so it is recommend that you plan in advance. 

Please note: Due to capacity issues, the Wilks Institute is not able to provide support for departments, faculty, or organizations outside of Student Life. We hope to be able to bring this service back in the future.
