University Advising Center
Bulldog Connect is an implementation of the EAB Navigate platform designed to help us:
- enhance the student experience,
- improve early identification of students in difficulty,
- facilitate the design and implementation of targeted and timely interventions,
- impact retention and persistence rates,
- improve operational efficiency and effectiveness, and
- replace GradesFirst, which is no longer being supported.
Bulldog Connect will facilitate scheduling student appointments with faculty, advisors, and other offices on campus. It will pull all student profile information into a single place and serve as a repository for advising notes. Additionally, it will facilitate student progress reports, communication to sets of students, issuing alerts, and tracking/reporting of advising efforts. Predictive analytics is also part of the system.
Information about training will be forthcoming.
Additionally, with our subscription to the software platform, we are also able to access student success resources from what EAB calls its Academic Affairs Forum. Among those resources are number of infographics that you might find of interest.
