SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2016
Portfolium, a cloud-based platform empowering students with lifelong opportunities to capture, curate, and convert skills into job offers, announced today that Salve Regina University, a liberal arts foundation of over 2,700 students located in Newport, Rhode Island, has selected Portfolium to power ePortfolios for students campus-wide.
Understanding that professional skills are acquired not just in the classroom but also through co-curricular activities, Salve Regina University encourages students to develop a variety of skill sets that may not be tapped into in the traditional classroom setting. The partnership with Portfolium aims to provide digital evidence of skills demonstrated on Co-Curricular Transcripts (CCTs), with the ultimate goal of maximizing students’ potential in the job market.
“As a university dedicated to connecting passion with profession, it was good time to consider co-curricular portfolios,” said Dr. Barbara LoMonaco, Vice President for Student Affairs at Salve Regina University. “Portfolium is the ePortfolio platform that resonates with the needs of higher education in a post-2008 world.”
“Portfolium is driven by a mission to connect learning with opportunity,” said Troy Markowitz, VP University Partnerships. “Salve Regina University brings together a remarkable academic experience, co-curricular skills, and a focus on career preparedness with CCTs. We are thrilled to advance the way Salve Regina students market themselves to employers, reflect on their skills, and connect with alumni.”
Salve Regina University boasts a Portfolium adoption rate of 85% for all first-year students with a broader objective to arm every undergraduate student at Salve Regina with a Portfolium. The university also seeks to leverage Portfolium in attaching competencies for their Navigator Leadership Program to the particular programs required for completion certificates.
