As a first-year student, you will learn more about our Life Experience Action Dimension (LEAD) program during fall orientation and throughout your first year at Champlain.
However, as a part of the LEAD program, all students are required to take two online assessments (described below) before they come to campus. These assessments are a Myers Briggs Type Indicator and a Financial Sophistication Assessment.
Neither of the assessments will take you very long, nor are they graded; these are tools that will help you understand yourself better and will give us a strong understanding of how to better serve the Champlain College student population.
Thoughtful self-assessment is key to thriving in college and making informed and strategic educational and career decisions. Prior to arriving on campus, all new students complete a brief online personality inventory called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), which provides a system for understanding human behavior. Going through an MBTI interpretation will be helpful as students move into the Lifelong Career Management portion of the LEAD program.
To complete the inventory, follow the directions below. If you do not have access to a computer or have questions, please call Career Services at (802) 860-2720, and we'll gladly mail a copy of the inventory to your home.
Please complete the MBTI only. There is no need to complete the Strong Interest Inventory at this time.
Understanding your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) results can help you answer some of these questions as you begin to plan for your future. There will be many opportunities to receive your results in Concept of Self classes (part of the Core Curriculum), small group LEAD workshops or in one-on-one appointments during the academic year. You will receive notices about the available options for participating in MBTI interpretations during the semester. Be sure to make time for one of the options.
Part of becoming a well-rounded citizen is learning how to make financially responsible choices. As a Champlain student, you are asked to complete two financial assessments to survey your financial knowledge and habits-one before you arrive on campus as a first-year student and one when you are a senior. All information is kept strictly confidential and will only be used as aggregate data.
When you arrive at Champlain, our innovative financial sophistication program will be an integral part of your LEAD program and education. You will have access to workshops and activities that will help you learn all that you need to know to be financially savvy. Whether you are starting from the basics or already have experience managing your personal finances, we will help you find the workshops that best fit your needs.
