  • You can search for organizations in the search field. The best way to search is either by name or the leader(s) of the organization. For example, if  a search was performed to find organization names based on “faculty,”  then all of the organizations  containing the name “faculty” will be displayed.
  • You will be immediately enrolled into the organization as a participant, or an email notification will be sent to the leaders of the org of your enrollment request.  The enrollment confirmation process depends on which option the leaders of the org selected.
