NAVIGATE FOR ADVISORS/STAFF/FACULTY

Achieve Ambitious Goals

In City Tech's 2018 Middle States self-study, we set ambitious student success goals; Navigate offers powerful tools to support us in achieving them.

City Tech's mission is to provide high quality technological and professional education for a diverse urban population. The leading recommendation of our 2018 Middle States self-study is to dramatically increase student success: double the associate degree graduation rate and increase the baccalaureate degree graduation rate to 50% between 2018 and 2026. To achieve these goals, students need easy access—including on their phones through a student-facing app—to clear, correct, and consistent guidance.

Whether you are a faculty member or a staff advisor, Navigate can help you target your effort to ensure students get the right guidance at the right time by enabling:

  • College-wide communication and collaboration among faculty, staff, and students to coordinate existing retention and completion programs;
  • Better and more flexible access to data, tied into communication systems;
  • Targeted selection and tracking of groups of students and the result of actions taken to better support them; and
  • Assessment of the impact of our work.
  • Ultimately, faculty and staff can track the positive results of advising messages and actions and feel confident in the guidance they offer students.
