Request an Organization Site

Why would I request this service?

Organization sites on Blackboard are intended to provide the functionality of course sites to groups that do not fit the definition of a course. This includes, but is not limited to, official campus organizations, student organizations, departments, and committees.

Terms of Service

  1. Please see the associated FAQs for information about organizations in Blackboard; the Blackboard services that are available to organizations; how to determine whether a Blackboard site will be useful for your organization, etc.
  2. Every Blackboard organization must have a WKU faculty or staff leader. If an organization’s faculty/staff leader leaves, the organization must designate another faculty/staff leader. This request form may only be completed by a WKU faculty or staff member.
  3. Faculty/staff organization leaders completing this request form will be required to complete online training via Blackboard in order to become familiar with the Blackboard organization tools. The same training is recommended for any individual who has the role of Leader, Assistant, Organization Builder, or Grader within a Blackboard organization.
  4. Blackboard organization sites are public web sites hosted by WKU and are governed by WKU policies. For more information, please view the WKU Policies page.
  5. Violating these restrictions by sharing copyrighted files (including music and media files) or by placing objectionable or criminal content on a Blackboard organization site will constitute grounds to remove content and/or close the organization’s Blackboard site.

What happens after I submit the request?
