Abstract
The Alfred State Micro Credentialing Project employs the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) competencies for career readiness to promote all aspects of the SUNY Excels performance framework and multiple strategic priorities at Alfred State SUNY College of Technology. The project will focus on Alfred State student employees for the initial year opening up to all students in subsequent years. Student employees work with their supervisors to determine which badges will help them best enhance their skills and prepare them for career success. Students participate in activities, online coursework, and projects that challenge current views and demonstrate their ability to develop skills to enhance their academic and professional careers. Theses credentials will be applied to the Alfred State co-curricular transcript. The project creates a micro credentialing program for student employees based on the eight NACE competencies for career readiness linked to Access, Completion, Success, Inquiry and Engagement with the foundation built on creating and documenting high impact learning experiences beginning fall 2018.
