Organizational Development Badge

Grow your network. Develop your leadership skills. Learn how to lead organizations effectively.

About the Badge

Are you currently leading or hoping to lead an organization now or in the future? The Organizational Development Badge gives participants the knowledge and skill set to effectively bring together groups of people with a common interest towards a positive goal. We utilize a dual-focused approach that lets students develop strategies to reach organizational goals while also giving them the lifelong tools to effectively lead others.

The Organizational Development Badge is one of two badges offered as part of the Developmental Experiences Micro-Credential.

Getting Started

Our Organizational Development Badge is open to undergraduate students of any major and is presented as a not-for-credit and hybrid learning experience.
