Connecting Millersville University students with involvement opportunities on campus is Get Involved, a multifaceted communications website powered by CollegiateLink.

“The Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL) has been using the Get Involved site for the past year as a student organization management tool,” said Katherine Kealey, assistant director of the CSIL. “Moving forward, we are beginning to expand the site’s functionality, which will make it more relevant to faculty and staff members.”

Currently, Get Involved is used by students for organization registration, event management and community service tracking. In addition, each organization has its own page with the capability of sending mass messages to its members, sharing documents and photographs, creating forms and promoting events.

Expanding the functionality, faculty and staff who serve as advisors to student organizations will have greater capabilities through the Get Involved site. “Student organization advisors will have the ability to use the site as a student organization management tool,” explained Kealey.

Additionally, University departments and committees will be able to use the site for communication and management purposes. Volunteer Central, Campus Recreation and Health Services are just a few of departments at Millersville currently using the Get Involved site.

The CSIL has faith in the potential of Get Involved, which includes future goals of implementing paperless banking center transactions, providing a means of budget and spending analysis. Plans for Get Involved even further down the road include electronic Student Senate funding allocation requests, tracking leaning outcomes and event registration, according to Kealey.

As of spring 2012, more than 2,300 students –and their respective organizations – were registered on Get Involved, with hundreds of users logging on daily.
