Welcome to the We CU Community Engaged Scholars Program! Below you will find instructions for how to register on GivePulse and enroll in We CU, information about signing up for projects, presentation slides and a link to the recording from the information session, and a link to the recording of the We CU Service Orientation.
1. Registration Details
To join We CU:
- Create a GivePulse account or merge your existing account
- Join the We CU group using this link June 7 through June 28
- Register as soon as possible for the best selection of service projects (projects are first come, first served.)
If you need help, please review the step-by-step instructions and FAQ on merging GivePulse accounts in the presentation slides under frequently asked questions.
Once you have registered for the We CU group in GivePulse, you can find a new service opportunity by browsing the available events (service opportunities).
If you would like to track service hours for an external service project, please start by completing this form to have your project approved.
Please register for only one GivePulse “event” at this time so we can adequately serve our community partners and provide enough opportunities for all our enrolled scholars. Registration for an event represents a commitment to the community partner and should be taken seriously. If you'd like to view example projects before registering on GivePulse, visit the We CU website.
2. Next steps after registering for an event on GivePulse
If you register for an event on GivePulse with a community partner, please plan for a wait time of up to 10 days before you will be connected to your community partner. This time is needed for the event to fill, the team leader to be selected, and introductions to be written. During this time, you can complete any suggested preparation work (found in the event description) and attend trainings.
You will receive a weekly newsletter on Mondays that includes information on trainings, service opportunities, mini grants program, and We CU Team Office Hours.
3. Presentation Slides
Please find the presentation slides linked here. FAQs can be found at the end of the presentation to answer many of the questions you may have about the program.
4. Information Session
If you missed our information session, please watch the recording and let us know if you have questions.
5. We CU Service Orientation & Tracking in GivePulse
The We CU Service Orientation is required for all We CU Scholars. Please be sure to watch the recording. Once you have watched the service orientation, you can register for the Summer 2021 Service Orientation event and add 1 impact hour on GivePulse.
