UW System is partnering with UW institutions and the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to implement the Navigate student success management system. Navigate is EAB’s advising workflow and student planning management software that UW institutions will incorporate into their student success and advising programs. The project will empower students with information and tools and help advisors, faculty and staff build more effective, timely support to improve student outcomes. While Navigate users will extend beyond advisors, this project supports UW System’s 360 Advising priorities and strategies to expand high quality, proactive advising to improve retention and guide students to graduation.

Navigate Project Objectives
  • Support the on-time implementation of Navigate
  • Facilitate, leverage, and enhance the EAB services to foster networking and sharing of best practices to drive student success
  • Leverage UW System resources to partner with EAB for change management and successful implementation
  • Promote the development of a common set of data and analytic models across institutions to support data-driven processes and decisions and ensure improved student success
UW System Investment
  • Lowers the cost to four UW institutions already using the EAB system
  • Provides an affordable entry for eight additional UW institutions to adopt Navigate
  • Supports UW System 360 Advising strategies to improve retention and graduation
