The office of Student Engagement and Leadership has renamed OrgSync, which was a Student Success Innovation Fund approved project, to “The Columbus State Hub.” The name change provides ease of access at the new URL, ( The Columbus State Hub is easy to access because students and employees can login with their Columbus State email and password.

The Columbus State Hub allows students and employees to connect with several organizations, departments, and resources on campus. Clubs and departments can manage their own presence on the system, providing a space to share events, news, photos, discussions, and files. Students can then interact and get credit on their co-curricular transcript and ePortfolio for participation in activities. The Hub acts as a space for collaboration and communication, access to resources, and assessment of programming and marketing.

If your department is interested in having a page on the Hub in the upcoming academic year (July 1), please respond by March 15 to Pierce Freshwater, specialist in SEaL, at ext. 2637.  Information sessions will be offered in April.
