Students - What are Badges?

What are badges and why would you use them?

Badges are a visual indicator of your progress towards your achievements as a student here at Buffalo State. Some badges will be for more general skills and knowledge, others for specific courses or programs of study. They are portable and can be used off-campus on your resume, Linked In profile, Mozilla Backpack, etc.
