SUNY Cortland is proud of its students’ accomplishments, and we want to help them share their milestones with the world.
This year, we are once again offering students an opportunity to share and promote their SUNY Cortland achievements while helping them build a professional online profile.
Unless students ask to be excluded, personalized news items for achievements such as making President’s List will be created and sent to involved students, their hometown media outlets, their high schools and their elected state representatives. The service, provided by Merit Pages, has published several achievements this semester, and will continue to do so. Learn more here.
In addition to that outreach, every participating student will have a profile on SUNY Cortland’s Merit website that will be automatically updated to reflect accomplishments publicized through Merit. We encourage students to personalize their profiles with a photo, additional information and accomplishments. By the end of your Cortland career this profile will serve as a solid foundation for professional profiles on LinkedIn, Handshake or other career platforms.
Since we are relatively new to Merit, we have not done much outreach with students to get them involved in creating personalized profiles. We hope to change that and build a collection of detailed student profiles that rival those of other New York universities and colleges, including:
All students will be automatically enrolled unless they request otherwise. To be excluded, please send an email message to Frederic Pierce, SUNY Cortland’s director of communications.
Faculty members are encouraged to share student achievements with the Communications Office for consideration as Merit posts.
