6 Creative Ways Campuses are Using OrgSync

August 29, 2012

All across the country institutions have been using OrgSync in creative and exciting ways. So often we get caught up in how we traditionally do things on campus, we don’t always explore new and innovative ways. With OrgSync, not only do you give students the tools to manage their organizations but you also empower other stakeholders across campus to help improve their own processes and enhance their programs. We just thought we’d take a minute to highlight some of the unique things a few of our campus partners are doing with OrgSync.

Presidential Debate 2012 Student Committees Presidential Debate Volunteer Management
The University of Denver has been chosen as a host university for one of the 2012 Presidential Debates. They have set up an OrgSync portal to manage their student committees charged with ensuring the success of such a prestigious event. They are running everything from committee applications to volunteer management.

National Collegiate Leadership Conference (NCLC) Full Conference Planning
Each year the University of Arizona hosts NCLC, the largest entirely student-run leadership conference in the nation. They have migrated all conference planning over to an OrgSync portal including staff management, registration and payments, public website, and to-do items for the planning committees.

Freshman Leadership Programs Incorporation of ePortfolio
Sul Ross State University manages their Freshman Leadership Programs in an OrgSync portal. They have successfully incorporated the ePortfolio as part of the required coursework for this program. This requirement encourages students to start tracking their participation and creating their personal brand as soon as they arrive on campus.

Box Office Room Reservations for Box Office
Many schools have started to move the purchase of tickets and other university gear

to OrgSync. Ole Miss is also posting room policies and guidelines for the the use of space.

Student Centers Student Center Poster Printing
DePaul has integrated OrgSync into every aspect of their Division of Student Affairs. From large processes to small, students are accustomed to going through OrgSync to get work done. One innovative example of this is student organizations must complete a form in the Student Centers portal to have posters approved and printed for the common space in the center.

Campus Restaurants Posting Menus to Community
In an effort to save paper, UAB has begun to post menus for campus restaurants online in an OrgSync portal. They also host special lunches and allow the community to RSVP for the events directly through the portal.

We know there are plenty of other creative ways partners are using portals and we’d love to hear about them. Please share the cool things you are doing in the comments section of this post or with your campus consultant. We’d love to hear about it and spotlight you too!

  • Do you all have any additional information on the Sul Ross ePortfolio project?

    • Hi Keri!
      Sul Ross State has incorporated the e-portfolio into their First Year Experience class curriculum. They have to complete certain sections of it to meet specific milestones during their semester. By the end of the semester, they have a portfolio that they can continue to build on for their remaining 3.5 years in school.

      If you have any more specific questions, contact Tracy Guilbeau, their Campus Consultant, at 972-907-0900 ext 218.

  • Western Carolina University has started using OrgSync for various assessments, including bi-weekly polls on the Community page, and creating survey’s under Forms for leadership workshops for those who attended. For our marketing, we’re also using Photo’s to upload images for reminders, events, etc. so that once students log into OrgSync they see the photo right in front of them (We have 2 main albums: “Fall 2012 Announcements” and “Fall 2012 Events”). We just ordered marketing and promotional items, such as t-shirts, stress balls, banner to hang, etc. in which we worked with our Marketing Department to help us create a new WCU friendly OrgSync logo which we’ve added to our Motto of the year, “Find an Org, Get Involved, Get Sync’d”

      Love the motto, Karen! The idea of using photos for reminders is a great one and something we haven’t seen before. It’s wonderful to hear how WCU is making such full use of all the awesome features OrgSync has to offer.
