Note: EAB encourages institutional leaders to share their success stories with other partners in the Navigate network. EAB is highlighting these success stories through a webinar series that earlier featured Pueblo Community College. That March 26 webinar on Best Practices for Serving Students Remotely was recorded.  This session also was recorded and a link shared below. Other UW System institutions interested in sharing their success stories are invited to contact their EAB strategic leader.

Description: Leaders at the University of Wisconsin–Parkside knew that a remote environment could exacerbate the equity gaps that already existed on their campus. UW-Parkside presenters discussed their holistic approach to supporting students at this time, which includes but is not limited to their use of Navigate. They have, for example, provided a laptop loaner program and set up hotspots.

As part of the webinar, they shared how they partnered with EAB’s Navigate to:

  • Effectively address students’ current technology and financial needs
  • Remove enrollment barriers such as advising holds
  • Position faculty as mentors
  • Empower students to navigate challenges presented due to COVID-19


  • Christina Hubbard, EAB Senior Director, Strategic Research

UW-Parkside presenters:

  • DeAnn Possehl, Associate Provost, Student Success
  • Neil Baumgartner, Director of Academic and Career Advising
