SMS (Service Management System) allows your campus to promote service opportunities to your students through OrgSync. A service partner can be any local community organization, department on campus, or volunteer program offering service opportunities to students. By connecting service partners to your OrgSync community, your campus can centralize service opportunities for students and manage community service partners.
How it works?
- Invite Service Partners: Invited service partners register portals within the service umbrella of your campus community.
- Create Service Opportunities: Service partners create service opportunities to be displayed on the Service Opportunities List, which students can access from Community Home.
- Students Sign Up: Students sign up for service opportunities, submit any required forms through OrgSync, and report learning outcomes and reflections after participating
- Approve Service Hours: Service partners approve service hours for students for each opportunity, which populates each student’s Involvement Report record and Co-Curricular Transcript.
How do students connect?
All service opportunities created by service partners are posted on the Service Opportunities List. This list is the central location for students to find and RSVP for service opportunities. To further advertise service opportunities, campus administrators can promote them on Community Home, and organization administrators can post them in their portals.
- Students can search for service opportunities by name, type, date, and/or service partner in the Service Opportunities List
- Campus administrators can promote opportunities to Community Home and on the community calendar
- Organization administrators or professors can post opportunities in their portals to share with students and members
