This link will bring you to the VIA Institute on Character webpage – there, click on “Take the Free VIA Survey”.  Be sure to download the report of your results so you can refer to it to complete the VIA Survey Reflection Assignment. List your top 5 strengths identified by the VIA Survey.  Then provide a reflection that addresses the following: 1. Do you see your top 5 strengths contributing to your life/professional purpose?  Why or why not?  If yes, provide a specific example of a situation or event when your strength(s) contributed to the outcome.  If not, describe how you could incorporate one or more of your strengths into action toward your purpose. 2. How might you tap into your strengths to propel you toward your goals for the future? 3. How do your top strengths relate to your personal values? For this assignment, your deliverable may be anything you choose, whether it’s a paper (no more than 4 pages ), a presentation, a graphic organizer, etc.  The intent of this assignment is for you to demonstrate critical thinking and reflect on your strengths and how they relate to your personal mission, vision and values; the method you choose to clearly demonstrate your proficiency in utilizing those skills is up to you.  Just make sure that you can submit your assignment through the Assignment function in Blackboard.
