What Are WVU Badges?

WVU Badges are micro-credentials that students, faculty and staff can earn after completing criteria in a particular subject area.

Badges aren’t just pretty pictures to display on social media or a resume (although they do look nice). They’re your digital currency that prove you’ve gained knowledge, experiences, skills or expertise for your own personal and academic growth.
