Student Staff Manuals

It is time to let go of the three-ring binders and create customizable digital training and leadership manuals. With Guidebook you can revise your training resources, end all the printing, and create a digital training and leadership experience for your entire student staff.

Resident Advisor

Create chapters of resources, link articles, attach PDFs, and cultivate your housing staff to be a well-informed community development team.

Welcome Leaders

Hundreds of welcome leaders need to be reachable in a moments time. Utilize push notifications, immediate schedule updates, and engagement tools to facilitate the welcome staff.

Orientation Leaders

The orientation team is one of the most informed student groups. Incorporate campus-wide resources and individual daily schedules to create a summer manual to equip the staff to facilitate a powerful program.

Student Government

Student representatives juggle complex agendas, campus events, university news, and need to keep up to date to critical issues. Our platform engagement suite will keep all representatives networked, informed, and ready to advocate on the go.

Recreation + Trip Leaders

Your recreation and outdoor trip leaders should be prepared for anything. Build manuals trip checklists, technical maps, custom lists, safety information, trip schedules, rosters, and more within their mobile device. No Internet required and leave no trace!

Tours Guides

Whether you’re creating mock-tours or hosting a campus wide visit event, your tour guides are always on the move (so are their schedules). Build an ever-changing touring manual to keep your team informed and ready to host!

Professional Staff

The Dean’s team, care network, campus safety, planning committees, interview panels, the President’s Office or Board of Trustees share updated manuals with PDF attachments, agendas, campus news, and critical communication tools.
