Navigate is a software package offering students a one-stop-shop to access services.

As more departments and faculty members join Navigate, a software package offering students a one-stop-shop to access services, support for students improves.

Matt Musser, student success software specialist, has helped departments implement Navigate into their workflow. The software syncs with the Outlook calendar function to allow academic advisors and faculty members to view student information on one platform.

"As more departments join, it makes it easier to collect student information in one unified place," Musser said. "So advising and support services can be more consistent across areas, which improves our ability to better support our students."

Student feedback on the software has been positive, Musser said. "Students have found it easy to find not only what they were looking for, but also see other services offered, and they like that," he said.

Faculty members can sign up for Navigate training in Sprout; Musser is also available to train departments on the system, connect with him by sending an email to [email protected].
