What is an ePortfolio?

Because of the numerous advantages having an online resume and portoflio of your achievements will provide during college and after, every EHP student will create and design the initial version of their ePortfolio website over the course of their first year. This is required by EHP to graduate with honors.

An ePortfolio is:

  • An online showcase for your education, goals, and accomplishments (to anyone you provide the link to and your EHP peers)
  • An opportunity to reflect upon and integrate what has been valuable about your college experienceAn online showcase for your education, goals, and accomplishments (to anyone you provide the link to and your EHP peers)
  • A professional presentation of yourself to potential employers, grad schools, internships and research experiences.

An additional benefit is that, because EHP portfolios are shared with the community, you will have access to see your peers accomplishments. You may find inspiration from seeing what earlier generations of EHPers have been involved with and may find persons to contact for more information about things you are interested in.


Baseline Requirements

The starting point for your portfolio is:

  • A current resume
  • Your philosophy of education, which you will write in Critical Encounters (Note: This is required to be on your portfolio while you are in college, but once you graduate, you may remove it if it does not serve your personal goals.)
  • Whichever elements apply to you and would benefit you to present when applying to grad school, research programs, internships or jobs.

We encourage you to go above and beyond and make your website something you are proud of and something that helps you achieve your goals.


When to Submit

Your personal URLs can be submitted as early as you would like during your freshman year, but please try to have it submitted no later the start of your second semester. The earlier you submit a URL, the sooner you will be able to share your achievements with the community.
