Promoting student achievements through

To celebrate the achievements of our students, The University of Toledo uses the software from readMedia to publicize student successes.

With this software, the University can create personalized stories about student accomplishments that are published online at and also sent to hometown newspapers when appropriate.

UT students already have begun receiving recognition for achievements such as making the Dean’s List and President’s List, and graduating from the University. Other achievements will continue to be added to the system.

A profile page is created when students receive their first University awarded badge (similar to Foursquare badges) for an achievement. UT has created an Enrollment badge that is awarded to all new Rockets at the beginning of each semester that will create profiles for all new students. Once created, the profile page can be personalized by the student with a photo, activities, work experience and more.

Students receive an email to their UT account every time they are awarded a badge for a University recognized achievement.

The profile is a way students can get credit for the good work they’re doing on campus, which helps with summer jobs, internships, and even job interviews and references after graduation.

We encourage students to personalize their profile pages and to share their achievements through social media, which is easy to do with buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and Google+.

Achievements are only published by the University for students who have not opted out of having their information shared through the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. You can choose to restrict the release of your records through the myUT portal. In “My Toolkit” under “My Records” is a link to “Update directory information/release status.” To not have your information shared in the future, change it to “Please restrict directory information.”

Visit The University of Toledo profile page and let us know other types of achievements that should be recognized with a badge.
