What is OrgSync?

OrgSync is a web application that allows students to join, organize, manage and communicate with student organizations and their members. Once you get the hang of it, it may even resemble a “Facebook” atmosphere strictly for student organizations.

OrgSync also means less paperwork. Forms commonly used by student organizations will be available online through OrgSync.

Why is OrgSync Beneficial To You?

For students
OrgSync encourages student involvement and awareness by making it easier to find registered UT Dallas student organizations and communicate with their members.

For registered UT Dallas student organizations
OrgSync houses all necessary materials regarding student organizations in one space. Since communication is key in handling day to day organization business, Orgsync helps to ease communication between organization members and increases efficiency. Within OrgSync, members of a student organization may keep a log of past officers for reference purposes, post pictures, complete organization surveys, announce meeting schedules, post event information and more.

OrgSync provides:

Improved Communication through email, shared calendars, contact books, news, discussion boards, shared pictures and files, and Facebook Connect.

 

Better Organization through event and meeting tracking, distributed news and to-do lists, paperless forms, membership rosters, community service log, and co-curricular transcripts.

 

Increased Efficiency by streamlining the inner-workings of your organization with a “one-stop shop” for organizational needs such as commonly used forms
