QUEST Phase 1

QUEST phase one is an emerging leaders program focused on Self-Awareness and based on the concepts of Gallup’s publication of StrengthsQuest ™. This phase is intended for students in their freshman or sophomore years, however any student is invited to participate. The semester-long program allows students to discover and learn about their natural talents and further develop them into strengths that are centered on their goals for the future.  Additionally, with Relationship Development in mind, students participating in this phase of the program will meet with a faculty mentor throughout the semester to reflect on their leadership calling and the skills required in their chosen area of focus, whether that be a co-curricular experience throughout college, a dedication to service or their future career path.

QUEST phase one: First-year Students- Each student enrolled in the Mission Core Curriculum will participate in Phase 1 of the QUEST program. Students will complete the StrengthsQuest assessment and must attend two 90 minute workshops. Additionally, in the second half of the semester, students will meet with a faculty mentor a minimum of four times to discuss their holistic development and their transition to Fontbonne.

QUEST phase one: Upperclass Students- Current or Transfer students will have the opportunity to participate in QUEST phase one in one of two formats:  Two 90-minute workshops or a overnight immersion retreat.

Throughout the semester, students will also be connected with a faculty mentor, meeting with them a minimum for four times throughout the semester.
