Meredith College Prepares Students for Strong Futures

Meredith College Prepares Students for Strong Futures

Meredith College students are well prepared for a strong future, and a new initiative launching in Fall 2014 will make Meredith graduates even stronger. StrongPoints™, an innovative advising and personal coaching model, will be a defining element of the Meredith educational experience.

President Jo Allen said, “Through this comprehensive initiative, students will identify their strengths, and examine over the course of their four years at Meredith how those strengths can help them shape their academic options, experiential involvement outside the classroom, financial goals and the means for achieving those goals, and career options.”

Students will work with trained faculty/staff advisers to explore options and articulate goals that build on and enhance their strengths for succeeding in college and in life.

Through the StrongPoints™ program, students will have access to a number of resources, including the opportunity to create a career portfolio, the results of a robust assessment tool to identify individual strengths, and Strengths Lab, a dedicated on-campus support service to guide students in developing and refining their strengths.
