If you don't understand yourself, how can you choose a major area of study, identify your professional goals and ultimately articulate to an employer what you bring to the table professionally?
Assessments are valuable tools that can help students and alumni evaluate their personal attributes and professional aspirations, needs and preferences. The Office of Professional Development currently offers the following assessment resource:
