OrgSync is an online community to help students stay connected to campus and manage community engagement activities. Through OrgSync, students can do the following:

  • Search involvement opportunities and request to join student organizations
  • Sign up for sponsored events
  • Manually input volunteer service hours for events attended that are not coordinated through CSI or the Honors College
  • Manage membership in multiple student organizations
  • Stay connected to campus by checking out the community calendar to see what events are going on
  • Track involvement through membership in student organizations, events attended, or hours spent volunteering

Navigating OrgSync

  • How do I document my hours?
    • Community Service Hours should be documented at the time they are performed via OrgSync.
    • When a student signs up for an Honors College or CSI hosted event through OrgSync, the involvement hours will be applied to the student’s account in OrgSync after the event has taken place. Students will be required to sign in and out at the event, or swipe his/her UWG student ID when attending the event.
    • Students volunteering service for any organization not hosted through the Honors College or CSI will need to manually input their volunteer service hours through OrgSync.
    • Before credit is received for the hours of participation, the Center for Student Involvement Office will contact the organization to confirm participation and validate the hours attended.
    • At the end of the semester the student participates in community engagement activities, students will complete a Community Service Project Reflection Summary Form that will be available within OrgSync. The reflection will help students gain a greater understanding of their roles in the community, as well as the impact of their contributions towards those in need of service.
    • Students will not receive credit for hours of participation until the community service reflection summary is completed.
  • How do I view and sign up for Volunteer Service Opportunities?
