Washburn University has partnered with EAB to utilize the Student Success Collaborative—Navigate Staff, a platform that combines predictive analytics and communication tools for academic advising and tutoring. EAB also offers Navigate Student, an app that helps students see all the important things in one easy-to-view path and reminds them of what’s next. The goal for this partnership is to ultimately improve retention and on-time graduation rates by identifying areas of additional support needed for students to complete their degrees and suggest roadmaps to a degree based on their academic strengths and past successes.

At the core of the initiative is an innovative software platform representing a data-driven paradigm shift in how advisors:

  • Identify and prioritize students needing extra support in critical foundational coursework
  • Engage in conversations with students who may have greater success outside their chosen major
  • Simplify intervention by aggregating previously disparate data into a 360-view of student health
  • Evaluate and compare alternative major decisions based on predicted academic performance
  • Proactively contact students to arrange advising or other student support services

Navigate Staff is not intended to add complexity to your advising. Instead, it is intended to guide the prioritization of outreach to and interaction with your students. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary resources to successfully utilize the Navigate Staff platform.

If you are not currently using the Navigate Staff platform, but are interested in doing so, please let us know. In addition, if you have any questions regarding implementation, best practices, or are not sure if the platform would benefit you in your current role at Washburn, please do not hesitate to contact us.
