The Don Clifton facility is a 38,000 square-foot building that is split to serve two significant purposes for Lincoln Public Schools.
The facility was named for Don Clifton, a native of Butte, Nebraska, and a psychologist best known for his development of the Clifton StrengthsFinder, Gallup’s online psychological assessment. Clifton was a psychology professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 1950 until 1969. He later served as chairman of The Gallup Organization, after his company, Selection Research Inc., acquired Gallup in 1988. Clifton also was a World War II veteran who was honored with the Distinguished Flying Cross. He passed away in 2003 at the age of 79.
