ORGSYNC

This spring the Stamp launched OrgSync, a new software program that will replace STARS for registering and managing student organizations.  The transition will be on-going throughout the semester.

What is OrgSync?

OrgSync is the gateway for all students to get involved and connected at the University of Maryland.  OrgSync is an online community where you can connect to student organizations and find out what’s happening on campus. OrgSync will also help student leaders streamline their involvement by organizing, managing, and communicating with their members all in one place.  It allows student organizations to manage records, store and share important documents, communicate with members, plan and publicize events, and track service hours and meeting attendance. Using OrgSync will save you time and effort!

Functions:

  • Start a new Organization
  • Renew your organization’s registration
  • Explore and join student organizations and track your co-curricular activities
  • Communicate with members or the campus community through email, text messaging, shared calendars, contact books, news, discussion boards, shared pictures and files, and Facebook Connect.

Features:

  • On-line storage space where organizations can store documents, pictures or any other files that “stay with the organization” even after members graduate and move on.
  • On-line forms that can be designed and created for your organization or shared with the campus community.
  • Polling tools to get quick feedback from your organization or community-wide.
  • A roster feature for communicating with members, inviting new members, archiving alumni members and more.
  • A calendar for scheduling events within your organization and the University of Maryland Community.
