Ithaca College is exploring the development of a system where you could earn “digital badges” for completing non-credit programs outside of your degree-seeking curriculum in areas that would be considered “personal or professional development”.  Topics might include: personal finance, personal wellness and/or nutrition, leadership, media & technology, software, sustainability, civic engagement and much more.  Badges could be incorporated into your ePortfolios or other badge systems.

Help us by taking this ONE MINUTE SURVEY.  Results will be used to guide a more in-depth analysis in the Fall.

THANKS!  - the Office of Extended Studies
