Organization and Teams
Essentially, an organization is a place to house your research group's work. Multiple repositories may be created inside the organization. You may create teams, or lists of users, for each project. You can then assign the team to a repository, and give the team appropriate permissions to the repository. Organizations and teams are further described by GitHub.

Using the 'Add member' button, new users can be added to your organization. Due to the way our authentication mechanism is tied to Purdue Career accounts, the user must have logged in to the Github instance at least once to be invited to an organization. All currently existing members of the github.rcac.purdue.edu instance have been already added to this instance.
