The Academic Hub is a name my team has given to a collection of WordPress plugins and themes designed for academic institutions. Included are two hub plugins (Connections Hub, Organization Hub) and a theme called the News Hub.
The Connections Hub plugin enables a “connection” post type that has fields for a person’s profile information including the groups they are members of and their links with others.
The Organization Hub plugin provides admin pages for managing users within an organization, including tools for the bulk creation of sites and management of updates.
The News Hub theme can be used to create news sites, as well as sites that display connection posts and their various taxonomies.
