"It was so opportune when we found Suitable. Before we didn't have any way for students to collect their experiences, reflect on them as they move through the scaffolding of our competencies"

Jo Chytka

Director of Academic, Career and Exploratory Studies Center (ACES) University of Wyoming

"The technology, the leaderboard, and the badges, are a way for students to recognize what others are doing, and that they can do those things too and that is immensely helpful."


Tyler Wiersma

Assistant Director for Undergraduate Professional Development

"We feel like students often don't know how to tell their story and the competency model that underpins Suitable we feel gives us a way to help our students tell their story."

"Suitable keeps everything in one nice and neat place with great reporting capabilities so it makes it really easy to keep track of the success of individual events as well as the aggregate."

"Suitable is the glue of the OCC because it's what students are logging into, what they're using, what they're seeing, and they can navigate their scorecard and their achievements, and it's important that they have a system that they trust."
