Merit Overview
Institutional Merit Page
By leveraging programs and efforts you've already put into practice across your campus, Merit lets your institution tell personal stories of each student's unique experience, at scale. Your institution's Merit page features your college's distinctive opportunities.
Student Merit Pages
A public Merit page for each of your students is a hub for showcasing their campus experience — it's like a résumé you build for them. Your institution updates each student's page with verified achievements and activities that reach thousands of stakeholders.
The Merit Application
Merit's web application lets your institution easily update Merit pages for your students with academic achievements, clubs and activities, work experience, and more. Merit gives you easy-to-understand reports that show you who those updates are reaching.

Communicators across campus can reach a broader audience with stories about student accomplishments when they update student Merit pages with stories they're already writing for other channels, and then see reports about how far and wide they are sending the institution's message.

The great thing about Merit is that it was set up for me, by Georgia Tech. The experience of college really adds up when you see it in one place. My Merit page is great for advertising myself when applying for jobs.

Academic Affairs

Each student who participates in your distinctive programs — like experiential learning opportunities, residential learning communities, undergraduate research symposia, honors programs — becomes a new way to tell the story of your academic programs and emphasize your institution's role in success. Merit connects these opportunities to an important set of stakeholders to reinforce your institution's impact on every student.
NPC selected Merit as the cornerstone of our efforts to foster better relationships with students, high schools and other key stakeholders through stories focused on our rich programs and student outcomes.
