"Badging in academic environments can often be complex as there are a variety of activities that occur on campus that support student and staff professional development and educational growth.  Many of these activities are formalized within the university accreditation structure, such as course work and degree programs, while other activities offer supportive services that enhance knowledge and skills to be successful in academia and beyond, such as research and writing services.

 

The following outlines the variety of badging possibilities within an academic institution and how offering badging across formal and informal activities, can provide a clearer view of a individual’s abilities, skill sets, and knowledge."
