Navigating Organizations

  1. The Organizations page defaults to current Organizations. Organizations are generally not assigned semester terms like courses are. Therefore you will most likely see all Organizations listed under "Assorted Dates."


Individual Organizations

  1. All Faculty and Staff are enrolled as participants in some organizations such as "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion" or "Ethics tests." To sort the page to show only Organizations where your role is a Leader, click on the Filter and select your role.

  2. The first line,  ORG-SIUE-101, is the Organizations ID. Use this Organization ID when communicating with ITS Tech support.

  3. The next line, SIUE 101, is the Organization's title.

  4. The Private lock indicates the Organization is unavailable to users. Click on the ellipsis and select Open Organization from the menu to make the Organization available to users.
