ORGS is on Blackboard

Grantwriting can be an overwhelming process. However, with the right tools, careful planning, and a little teamwork, it can be easier than you think.


ORGS has placed a myriad of helpful tools and resources on our Blackboard site, all meant to make your life a little easier. As of Fall 2008, all full time Nursing and Health Professions faculty should have been enrolled, meaning ORGS will be visible under the "Communities" tab (as well as "My Organizations") when you log on. If you are having problems finding the ORGS Community on Blackboard or would like to be enrolled in the ORGS Blackboard community, please contact us.
