Welcome to the OpenLab!

What is the OpenLab?

The OpenLab is an online community where SPS students, faculty, and staff meet to learn, work, and share. Its goals are to support teaching and learning, enable connection, and strengthen the life of the college community.

The OpenLab allows its members a look at what’s going on around SPS.  It gives students a  way to search for and join physical and virtual clubs and other groups.  It gives faculty, staff, and students a space for creating and searching for a wide range of different resources across campus.  By creating an online community campus space to extend the virtual nature of our population, the OpenLab is growing and fostering community across SPS.

What can you use it for? 

  • Campus Resources: Create, browse, or join a campus resource, used for a wide range of activities such as committees, grant-funded initiatives, departmental working groups, student research projects, and more.
  • Student Organizations: The OpenLab also supports student organizations, which can be officially chartered or unofficial groups based on shared interests.
  • Portfolios: Anyone–students, faculty, and staff–can create a portfolio to showcase their work.
  • Community: You can join just to meet members, communicate with colleagues, and make friends.

Here’s how to get started!

The OpenLab has also been created for the SPS community by a team that includes and depends on SPS faculty, staff, and current and former students. If you’d like to be involved please contact us at any time.
