A Canvas Organization is a special course site in the Learning Management System. Unlike a regular course with a start and end date with a certain semester, an organization is always available. Department leaders, program chairs, and club advisors manage Canvas Organizations to communicate and engage with various groups of students, faculty, and staff.
Need your own Organization?
WilmU faculty and staff may request to set up a new Organization for their group by completing the Canvas Organization Request form.

|Name of Organization and self-enroll link/Point of Contact
|Applied Family Science Master Program||Join this organization to learn about the AFS program, including bios for the faculty in the program, library resource guides, and other academic support resources.|
|Cyber Makers||In a million garages, attics and work spaces around the world the future is being created. With the introduction of new tools, new toys, new techniques and new materials an idea has taken root. An inconceivable number of projects combining science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics being created by anyone with the desire to create. Add that many of these projects are openly available and free to duplicate or be modified by anyone. It is an amazing time to be curious.
To tap this spirit of creativity and innovation Wilmington University has created the Cyber Maker’s Club. This club is open to anyone at Wilmington University who is curious about where technology is going and who wants to learn how to shape it. What many people don’t realize is that some of the most impressive tools such as 3D printers and CNC cutting machines are simple to operate and provide spectacular results. You don’t have to be a technology wizard to participate. All you need is a sense of adventure and imagination (the learning part will happen accidentally).
