Tag Individuals

Give credit to one or more key individuals (both faculty and staff) on the project. Tagging people not only allows individuals to be listed on your project but also allows them to import the projects onto their profiles reducing duplicate data entry.

linking of community partners

Identify Key Issues

Use keywords assigned to projects to identify issues that are critical to the success of your organization and the community you belong to. Strategic issues can be addressed and used to build a foundation for future and forward-thinking strategies that can help your organization seize current opportunities.

spreading information through a megaphone

Increase Awareness

Disseminate information about your community projects to both internal and external stakeholders. At most organizations information about such projects generally resides with one department collecting this data, or within the heads of your faculty conducting these projects. The system allows your organization to share the information via individual profiles, reports or special purpose websites not only within the organization but throughout your community and move a little closer to your goal of social change.

Promote data re-use

Most importantly, faculty will never have to provide the same information twice. Information once in the system can be used by the public, by collaborators, by faculty’s managing units or by the university administration in a number of ways - all without inundating the faculty with additional requests for information. Faculty can include information into their annual reviews and directly receive feedback from review committees on their community projects.
