ArgoPulse is an online database system that is developed and managed by a company called CollegiateLink. It supports registered student organization (RSO) administration through the development of electronic forms and processes, and a process management system that can be configured to include multiple levels of approval when appropriate.
Additionally, it provides RSOs with a secure website that is edited using a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor. Stakeholders in this project include student leaders, students, faculty/staff, campus administrators and alumni.
The most beneficial feature of ArgoPulse, from many students' perspectives, is the ability to request a verified student involvement report. ArgoPulse tracks involvement while providing verification of activities.
Students are responsible for self-reporting memberships and leadership roles, but those entries are submitted to the appropriate personnel for verification before they are displayed on a student's involvement report.
Students may print an unofficial copy of their involvement report whenever they choose (see the Student User Guide for detailed instructions). Please note that Career Services is responsible for tracking official Community Service hours through JasonQuest. Contact the Volunteer UWF! office for more information.
Students may also choose to export a copy of their Student Involvement Report as a PDF file that can be included during application processes for employment or graduate school.
When students log in to ArgoPulse for the first time they are prompted to complete a simple profile and are then encouraged to select from a wide-ranging list of Interests. The list of Interests is constantly growing as we receive feedback from students.
Organizations are prompted to select Interests from the same list during their registration process, and both students and organizations can edit their Interests at anytime (refer to the Student User Guide for detailed instructions).
After student's complete their profile and add Interests ArgoPulse offers suggestions for involvement by pairing students and organizations based on Interests.
