GPE Connect is the community engagement hub for the GPE Network. Students can connect with other students to share rich content any time through spaces created for the links. Instructors can get the up-to-date information they need to conduct their links through the resource portals. All members can use chat as a unified communication tool. It's like GPE's own private social network that allows students and instructors to engage more deeply without having to negotiate a common platform or give out personal information if not desired. GPE Connect is only available to instructors, students, and staff from GPE member institutions.
