Developmental Experiences Micro-Credential

Our Developmental Experiences Micro-Credential provides participants with meaningful and intentional student professional development opportunities that are offered through Student Engagement. You will have the opportunity to earn multiple digital badges while gaining leadership skills, expanding your career readiness, and learning to be an advocate within our campus community and the WNY community at large.

Leadership and Development Micro-Credential

The Leadership and Development Micro-Credential program offers recognition for the skills you develop during jobs, internships, and experiential learning opportunities through a series of digital badges. This program aligns your experiential learning with NACE Career Competencies, ensuring you acquire essential skills for your future career, such as communication, teamwork, professionalism, and leadership.

Students who earn all three badges will earn the Leadership and Development Micro-Credential, which recognizes completion of the full program.
