The Pursuit of Greatness program is now Credly credentialed
Introduced in early 2021, Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity’s Pursuit of Greatness membership development program offers a self-navigated personal development experience that combines online education, applied learning, and alumni mentorship opportunities. Through the program, undergraduate members develop vital interpersonal skills and career attributes desired by employers.
In addition to the proficiencies learned, members who complete the program will benefit by achieving Credly credentialed digital badges. Credly hosts the most extensive digital credentialed network and partners with such entities as Adobe, Oxford University, Procter & Gamble, Project Management Institute, and Hilton. Earning certified digital badges through the Pursuit of Greatness program helps undergraduate members share their Phi Delt experience with potential employers and explain how it is relevant to the opportunities they seek.
Digital credentials are changing the way the world recognizes learning. Every badge contains verifiable metadata that explains the learning objectives associated with each badge and why they matter. In addition, every badge can be shared on social media, embedded into an email signature, résumé, website, or linked to for complete visibility of one’s professional story.
“By earning Pursuit of Greatness badges, you’re showing the world that you’re interested in bettering yourself and bringing the best version of you to the world,” said Sean Wagner, Phi Delta Theta executive vice president, and CEO. “Our partnership with Credly allows Phis to demonstrate this in an exclusive, easy, and trusted way. In addition, the Credly platform provides the opportunity to efficiently show what you learned, how you learned it, and why it’s important across multiple platforms and audiences.”
