Show Us Your Badges

Our campus has a growing badging program as part of an overall University System of Maryland digital credentialing initiative. Many of our badges focus on co-curricular topics like financial literacy or introduction to research while others fall under professional development topics such as leadership.


As part of our ongoing transition to Ultra, we've created two badges to support our outreach efforts. The badges feature the "Ultra purple" as its signature color and our "Beebee" mascot. (More on her creation in another post.)


The first badge is given to our Ultra Faculty Ambassadors.

The second badge is given to our Ultra Early Adopters -- these are faculty who redesigned courses using the Ultra Course View over the last academic year, ahead of their college transition schedule.
