AUP Engage Officially Launches Spring 2019

Home>News & Events>

The AUP Student Development and AUP Academic Affairs teams have partnered up to officially launch the new AUP Engage platform during the first week of classes this Spring semester 2019.

AUP Engage is a student-facing platform acting as a one-stop shop for all student-related campus activity. The platform centralizes important information and tools for students including news and events, clubs and organizations (including finance and budgeting), voting in student elections, the new Co-Curricular Record (CCR) and the Global Professional Skills Program (GPS).

One of the most exciting features of AUP Engage is that it brings together up-to-date information that in the past has not been readily accessible, most notably in the form of “organizations.” These include many academic and administrative departments, but the most exciting are the student clubs. Members of our community can pop on AUP Engage at any time and view a complete list of student organizations with information about how to get involved and who to contact.

Clubs at AUP take in sports as varied as volleyball and yoga, vocational pursuits like the Finance Club and student causes like AUP Diversity and Culture Club. By making updates more accessible, we hope to further encourage the creativity and dynamism already on display within our student body.

Everyone – including students, faculty and staff – has an automatically created account on the platform

Everyone – including students, faculty and staff – has an automatically created account on the platform and can easily sign in with their AUP credentials (NetID and password). Faculty and staff are encouraged to promote their events and share their news in this innovative space where students will be regularly spending time.

The platform is also supported on mobile devices through an easy-to-use application called Corq (a platform provided by Campus Labs, the company that hosts AUP Engage), available on both Android and iOS. In addition to the tools already available via the online platform, the application provides access to event passes. The pass system uses personal QR codes that, if scanned, track student attendance at events – a very useful feature when such attendance satisfies a GPS Program requirement, for example.

An AUP Engage FAQ page on the AUP website, along with a series of brief video tutorials, are forthcoming. In the meantime, students with questions are encouraged to reach out to Safia Benyahia at student_leadership@aup.edu, and faculty or staff with questions are encouraged to reach out to Darcee Caron at gps@aup.edu.

See you on AUP Engage!
