It’s actually not a single tool but a suite of tools designed to create a private community platform for departments, student organizations, teams, and any groups on campus. An inventory of more than 30 modules allows for: Setup and management of group communication Event scheduling Group membership maintenance The ability to issue surveys and polls And more Register Your Group All recognized graduate student groups have been created in MyPrincetonU as unpublished, with the president assigned as the officer. The president will need to add the other officers, update the group settings, and publish their student group page.
