UW Oshkosh's Plone team includes alumni, staff and student employees from many campus units: Polk Library, Reeve Union, Residence Life, Information Technology (comprising Academic Computing, Administrative Computing, and Learning Technologies), College of Business, and Integrated Marketing and Communications.

In addition, our Plone-based campus Intranet project has wide participation from other administrative units, helping us modernize the way we collaborate and share internal information with our faculty, staff, and students, as well as converting paper processes into faster and more efficient online workflow applications.

All told, the UW Oshkosh Plone team has deployed and continues to manage and support almost 300 Plone sites, for uses including external marketing, intranets, and online business processes ("workflow applications").

The UW Oshkosh Plone team includes a co-chair of PloneEdu (collaboration of K-12 and higher education institutions using Plone), two members of the Plone Foundation, and members of the Plone User Interface, Framework, and Security teams.
