Abstract: If more educational institutions embrace strengths-based education and identify students' strengths in the early semesters of postsecondary education, students may be inspired to capitalize on their strengths and maximize potential in college. Educational stakeholders can also engage those student strengths in teaching and learning for educational benefit. With an aim of increased postsecondary graduation rates, revisiting strengths-based education provides possibilities for retaining students and meeting new graduation goals.
