Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

The MBTI provides personalized feedback to students about their preferences for each of the four dichotomies in Jung's theory. With their MBTI results, students participate in a workshop focusing on temperament type to help them identify their "best fit type."

Emotional and Social Competency Inventory

Students who complete the ESCI gain personalized feedback about their emotional intelligence, which enables them to focus their leadership development goals and coaching sessions. The insights gained also provide awareness to students in team and group activities.

Personal Values Questionnaire

The PVQ provides self-awareness to students when thinking about core values, leadership development, decision making, ethics, and a future in public service.

Personal Assessment of Management Skills

The PAMS instrument is designed to identify students' current level of skill competency in 10 personal, interpersonal, and group skill areas. Modified from David Whetten and Kim Cameron's "Developing Management Skills," the assessment is used various times throughout students' graduate experience for self-awareness and peer feedback.
