The NKU Strong initiative uses the VIA character strengths framework as a way to understand and speak about what is best in each of us. The 24 VIA character strengths is a “common language” of personality traits that reflect our personal identity, produce positive outcomes for ourselves and others, and contribute to the collective good.  Each person has all 24 strengths within them, with the top strengths qualifying as a person’s unique combination of “signature strengths” that describe who they are when they are at their best.  In short, the strengths describe what is best in human beings.
