Abstract: Student portfolio development is an area of interest and activity on many campuses. This article describes an 8- year effort by leaders in student and academic affairs at a large research university to implement an e-portfolio. Initiated in response to a suggestion by the university president, the 5-year development process has led to the creation of a system now used by over 25,000 students. The e-portfolio program features activities that enable students to learn about and document nine general skills related to life/career development, which can then be shared with employers, faculty, and other referred users. This provides a framework for students to reflect upon and integrate their full learning experiences. Outcomes of an evaluation process are briefly described, followed by a review of e-portfolio program accomplishments, ongoing work, and future possibilities.
