College Corps: Campus Admins (Help Home)

Modified on Tue, 7 May at 9:08 AM

This is the main resource page for Campus Admins.


Site Structure, Vocab, and Roles

College Corps uses two America Learns Impact Suites: College Corps (Fellows) and College Corps (Partners).

America Learns supports an entire network of AmeriCorps and non-profit organizations all over the country, each using different language to describe their service experience. Because of this, America Learns has adopted generic, overarching terms to describe these roles in the Impact Suite. 

Here's guidance on search term utilization when seeking a solution in the America Learns Support Center powered by Freshdesk. 

To make this easier to navigate, we've added a table below with a list of core terms your College Corps team utilizes in both the Partner and Fellow Impact Suites. To the right of that, we've added the generic term we use in the America Learns FreshDesk Articles.  

Fellow Site

The Fellow Site is the webspace where your Fellows will interact with the system to complete a profile, time sheets, and reports. This is the space where you and your Community Host Partner Supervisors will manage Fellows.
