Dean’s Leadership Circle Emotional Intelligence Pilot Grant



The Talent Design Studio Innovation Hub was established in 2023 with a Dean’s Leadership Circle grant* to pilot the impact of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) development with a group of Merage School students. The EQ pilot program was done through a strategic partnership with world EQ assessment leader RocheMartin to great employer support and interest.


* The pilot is currently underway with the anticipated completion date of July 2024.


Support exciting opportunities within our Talent Design Studio Innovation Hub where we test and study new support and resource offerings to better align university career services to today’s top talent conversations and needed Future of Work skills. Funding opportunities are available around advising and coaching development, supportive technology, and strategic partnerships.

“With hybrid work here to stay and the rise of artificial intelligence, soft skills will be critical in gaining personal and professional success. From what I’ve previewed with the Merage School EQ pilot, the school is doing something incredible. I look forward to seeing how this transforms the next generation of leaders entering the workforce.”
