Engage is a platform that empowers students to connect to campus, discover opportunities, and take charge of their own co-curricular involvement at Mizzou, while also providing user-friendly organization management and communication tools. In Engage, every student is able to document their co-curricular experiences and develop a portfolio of their learning outside the classroom including organization memberships, event participation, leadership positions and community service.
Engage has replaced OrgSync as Mizzou’s student engagement platform. Many of the best features of OrgSync have been incorporated into Engage in addition to several new features like mobile event check-ins and organization elections.

Office and Storage Space
ORG offers Recognized Student Organizations the opportunity to reserve one of the professional cubicle spaces and/or storage spaces in the Center for Student Involvement (CSI). All student organizations who wish to hold office or storage space in the CSI must complete an application in the Spring.
General expectations for organizations that are allocated space include:
- Remain in good standing with the Organization Resource Group (ORG) for the entire academic year.
- Remove all trash from space and keep the area clean and orderly. Utilize the recycling bins located next to the Involvement Ambassador desk.
- Post and maintain a minimum of 10 office hours per week.
- Use the space in a respectful, professional manner. This means that you will keep your space clean, presentable, and neat.
- Keep noise to a minimum.
- Do not steal chairs from the center tables or other cubicles and leave them in your space.
- Do not use your space solely for storage.
- While we understand that you may do homework/study during your office hours occasionally, that should not be the primary use of the space.
Information regarding the next Office/Storage Space Application will be posted on Engage and e-mailed to organization officers.
Student Organization Meeting Spaces
The Organization Resource Group has recently renovated our meeting spaces within the Student Organization space in the CSI to enhance the quality of your meetings. Each meeting room now has a full set of white boards, a TV and an HDMI cord to hook up your laptop. We understand that some Macbooks are not compatible with HDMIs, so we now also have HDMI adapters available for checkout in our office. The meeting rooms do not require a room reservation, but if you would like to make sure an organization doesn’t use the room when you need it, you must make a reservation.
Room Reservation/Adapter Information
- Reservations may only be made by Recognized Student Organizations in good standing.
- Reservations are NOT to be used for group study sessions, but instead for organization meetings or business.
- Meeting room reservations must be made during ORG’s normal business hours (M-F, 8-5) and must be done in office (2507R) or by e-mail no later than 4pm the day before (2 hour time limit on all reservations).
