Community Building: Imprint – Wiki Project

Imprint Wiki

Imprint, the University of Waterloo’s official student newspaper, faces an interesting HR challenge every 4 months. A new editorial is selected at the start of every school term and volunteers come and the years pass by. Given the high turnover of its staff and the need to attract fresh, new faces to the organization, providing adequate training can be a challenge.

I initiated the Imprint Wiki project with the editor-in-chief at the time to act as a living resource that volunteers would update on an ongoing basis with training and best practices information.
