We joined the Student Success Collaborative because we want to:
- Enhance the student experience
- Create effective and efficient practices in advising
- Improve retention and graduation rates
Led by faculty, staff and academic leadership, the implementation of the SSC will impact our ability to support undergraduate students from enrollment to graduation. The SSC is a comprehensive solution that brings together historical data analytics with advisor workflow and student communication tools to deliver smarter, personalized support to each student. This functionality will allow the University of Vermont to improve undergraduate student retention and the percentage of undergraduate students graduating in four years, two of our most important Academic Excellence Goals.
An advisor-facing web application and a mobile application for student use make up the EAB SSC management system, called Navigate.
Consultants from the Education Advisory Board (EAB) met in January 2018 with the UVM Leadership and Engagement Teams who are working to configure the applications. The teams, which include representation from faculty, staff, administration and technical staff, are meeting regularly to establish content, customize application functionality, and discuss long and short term goals for the project.
The incoming class of 2022 will utilize Guide to view course schedules and campus resources at Orientation in June 2018. A robust training schedule for faculty and staff is being established as a phased roll out of Campus will begin in Fall 2018.
