GPS Micro-credentialing

Graduate and postdoctoral training at UTSA is predicated on the development of a set of interconnected skills and competencies that lead to academic and career success. To this end, The UTSA Graduate School provides competency-based professional development opportunities. To assist graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in tracking their skills acquisition, The Graduate School offers credentials or "badges" for achieving competencies delivered through various experiences.
