Can Teachers create GitHub Teams?

hi folks,

simple question as a Teacher on GitHub Education, is it possible for us (Teachers) to create a Team?
I don’t see the option in my profile and I’m not sure if I’m looking in the correct place.

Hi @davemurphy,

Verified faculty can now easily upgrade any GitHub organization being used for academic purposes to GitHub Team with a single click.

Simply visit your GitHub Education benefits page at

Organizations you own will be listed near the bottom of the page:

Click the Upgrade button next to the organization name to immediately upgrade it for free to GitHub Team.

Please note:

You may be required to re-verify your faculty status one time in order to unlock this new functionality. To do so, click “submit your information again” near the top of the page to reapply. It will take a few days for us to reverify you, so thank you in advance for your patience.

thanks for the Information @ericdrosado I’ve completed the request to upgrade benefits.
Looking forward to getting student teams off the ground.
