New OU website to feature volunteer opportunities

From The Oklahoma Daily:

A new OU Web site, engage.ou.edu, will allow students to track community service and volunteer hours for classes, campus groups or personal use this fall.

The Web site is being tested by about 200 students this semester, said Quyen Arana, associate director of the K20 Center, an OU program that seeks to improve the Oklahoma economy and well-being through education. The center is receiving feedback from students testing the program to fix the Web site’s problems before it is fully launched.

Students are involved in tests concerning classroom settings that require community service or campus volunteer groups.

Through the site, professors and group leaders can make groups for their students to join. They then can go through the opportunities and select the ones that pertain to their students.

When engage.ou.edu is launched, local organizations will be able to log onto the Web site to post volunteer opportunities. Professors and group leaders can create specific opportunities for students and link the group created for their class or organization.
