Community Organizations

Blackboard has the Community Engagement Feature which makes organizations now available in Blackboard Learn. Organizations in Blackboard Learn contain content and tools to keep you informed and in touch with other members of your organization. An organization looks exactly like a course, including:

  • A menu similar to the course menu
  • A home page
  • Tools similar to a course’s tools, like announcements and discussions

To request an organization in Blackboard, please complete the Request Organization in Blackboard form. Upon approval and completion, a confirmation email will be sent to the requestor with further information and details. For Student Organizations, the campus advisor MUST be the requestor and a leader in the organization.
