Badges are electronic micro-credentials that are digital representations of educational achievements.

The Badging and Pathway Program will focus training efforts on particular skill sets that are valuable to employees and to campus. It is only one component of professional development and is not intended to provide the full realm of development experiences required by employees. Participation in this program is voluntary; however, the completion of pathways can be an asset when applying for University positions requiring specific OHIO qualifications.  More information on current updates to the badging process will be released soon.
