There are many ways to get involved at UNO. Read on below for information about MavSYNC, one of UNO's newest online resources, and clubs and organizations on campus.
You may have heard some of the hype around UNO’s newest online resource, MavSYNC, but what exactly can it do for you? MavSYNC creates an online community where students can explore student organizations, fraternities and sororities, campus recreation, university departments, and community engagement opportunities on UNO’s campus in order to make getting involved a little easier.
MavSYNC has two general functions, one external and one internal. Externally, organizations and departments can use MavSYNC to promote events, resources, and reach out to students interested in getting involved on campus. Any student (yes, even you!) can easily browse through MavSYNC to see what organizations are out there to join. Internally, students who are already involved can easily manage their organizations by streamlining communication, collaboration, forms, and even event planning.
Don’t see a club you like? Start a new one.
If you find yourself browsing through MavSYNC and can’t find the organization you are looking for, this is your chance to start one! As students’ interests grow, new organizations are being started every year. You can create yours in 3 easy steps:
New clubs need to start with at least 4 currently enrolled, UPF fee paying UNO students and 1 staff or faculty advisor. It’s super important that each student on your team has a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.0 in order to qualify.
Your organization must have a constitution that outlines the terms and regulations of your club. Don’t worry, there’s an awesome template for a constitution available online via MavSYNC. just download it and plug in your info.
Once you’ve got your team ready and a game plan in place, log on to MavSYNC and fill out the “Register New Organization” form, available under “Organizations.” Once you submit your request, the Student Life and Leadership Development office will review it and contact you with the results.
