Project One: Using Your Strengths

Project One 2018-19: Using Your Strengths

Project One hosts film screenings, discussions, and speakers to help students discover and utilize their strengths. All first-year students will be given access to the CliftonStrengths assessment, and be given the opportunity to participate in discussions around how strengths can be used to improve well-being, team dynamics, and community inclusivity. The project will culminate in a spring film festival, where students will have the chance to create their own multi-media project about their strengths.

If you are a first-year student who would like to request access to the Georgia Tech Strengths portal, please email Dr. Lacy Hodges at

As part of Project One, all students will also receive access to the Clifton Strengths for Students e-book. The book can be accessed through Georgia Tech's Strengths portal (you can find the book in the "Resources" section of the Strengths site).

All first-year students are encouraged to become active participants in Project One and to attend our film screenings and other events throughout the year. Project One will be used in some English 1101/1102 sections, GT 1000 classes, and other first-year courses and programs.

Project One has also partnered with the Georgia Tech Effective Team Dynamics initiative, which integrates Strengths into the curriculum of 1000, 2000, 3000, & 4000 level classes. Click here to learn more about the Effective Team Dynamics initiative.
