You may have heard it before, but it's worth repeating many times ... you are your most valuable asset! So, it shouldn't be surprising that the first step on the learning journey begins with an understanding of self.   To aid in that process, we encourage you to take advantage of the self- assessment resources listed below.  These resources are provided at no cost and available for immediate use.  Where there is a cost associated with the assessment, contact the Office of Assessment, Training, and Technology to receive your complimentary assessment pass.

And don't forget to register for and attend the accompanying courses where you will engage with expert facilitators to interpret your self-assessment results and develop a plan of action. Best of all, the exchange of dialogue in the classroom will give you new insights about yourself.

The Life Values Inventory was developed to help you answer those questions by focusing on relationship between your values and action.  In fact, because it focuses on the link between the two areas, many of our staff members have the assessment helpful with their career planning.  There is no better career than one that aligns your values.
