What is EngageSU?

EngageSU is a suite of applications that contains four modules: Careers, Learning & Development, Performance Assessment, and Pay Administration. EngageSU integrates with Colleague XE and works with single sign-on capabilities. Please read below for EngageSU module descriptions and resources, and visit the Human Resources EngageSU site:

EngageSU Learning & Development 

EngageSU Learning & Development is a way to catalog, assign and track professional development materials available at SU. It includes notification and search capabilities and provides an improved training experience.

EngageSU Performance Assessment (Coming Spring 2018)

The EngageSU Performance Assessment system will streamline the performance review process.

EngageSU Learning & Development 

On November 28, 2016, the first EngageSU module, Learning & Development, was deployed although faculty and staff did not start using it until February 2017, once compliance training products were activated.

EngageSU Learning & Development is not a tool to create training content and it does not replace Canvas as a student learning management system.  Rather, it is a way to catalog, assign, and track professional development materials available at SU. It includes notification and search capabilities, and provides an improved end-user training experience. Human Resources also expects to see savings in time and effort.

Starting in February, required compliance training (such as FERPA, Data Security and Harassment & Discrimination Prevention) migrated from LawRoom to EngageSU. The plan is to continue to build out the training catalog to make it increasingly useful for faculty and staff. The Human Resources Office of Learning and Development will be working with a few areas to migrate position-specific training to the EngageSU L&D system.

EngageSU Careers

EngageSU Careers is the university's recruiting and onboarding system. EngageSU Careers provides the following capabilities:

  • Customized job websites for faculty & staff positions
  • Simplified sites and application workflows for internal searches
  • Colleague XE integration and single sign-on
  • Mobile functionality
