The purpose of this study was to examine whether first-year college students' strengths awareness is associated with their perceived leadership development. The institution in this study offered all first-year students the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment and strengths-related programming. The results of hierarchical regression analysis of two concurrent surveys (n = 779) suggested strengths awareness explained a significant amount of variance in students' perceived leadership development above and beyond the variance explained by other variables.
