About My Org Units widget
Normally, organization administrators are the only users at an institution who can view and navigate to all org unit types through the Org Unit Editor tool found in the Admin Tools menu. Instructors and learners cannot easily navigate to org unit types other than course offering org units they are enrolled in, which are listed in the course selector on the minibar and in the My Courses widget.
My Org Units is a custom widget that allows all users to search and navigate to different types of org units they are enrolled in such as colleges, departments, semesters, groups, sections, course offerings, and course templates. This widget allows instructors and learners to go to other org units aside from their enrolled course offerings, bypassing the need to have access to the Org Unit Editor.

Administrators need to ensure the widget is enabled from the Organization Tools page before users can add it to their organization or org unit homepages.
