VCCS has selected the EAB Navigate technology tool, to implement at scale, several components of our VIP-PASS strategy. Navigate provides a structured onboarding experience using student-centered tools that help students develop clear academic plans, understand their time to degree completion, and communicate with advisors. The tool also helps students create an academic course schedule that takes into account their ambitions, as well as their class, study, work, and personal commitments. The platform nudges students to take steps that will increase the likelihood that they will succeed. Additionally, EAB Navigate’s advising and administrative tools help colleges improve advising supports and business processes.
EAB Navigate does not replace the need for advisors or for interpersonal contact with faculty and staff.
EAB Navigate does not replace the need for advisors or for interpersonal contact with faculty and staff. It provides our colleges with an integrated tool that helps ensure a comprehensive onboarding process. It also gives our students, faculty and staff user friendly tools to help communicate, collaborate, provide at scale advising and student supports.
EAB Navigate is an integral piece of our comprehensive plan.

All 23 colleges will implement the full onboarding, advising, and administrative tools available through the platform. This will occur between Spring of 2018 and Spring of 2019. However, all colleges will begin working in the Summer and Fall of 2017 towards process improvements needed to fully implement the technology. This will be an inclusive and comprehensive implementation and will require that our colleges are fully engaged in their guided pathways work and in evaluating and streamlining business processes to ensure we are scaling the best possible practices.
To manage the implementation process and ensure that all colleges have the time needed to prepare adequately, we will implement EAB Navigate in three waves. You will learn more about your college implementation plan through your college leadership over the next year.
Each college will develop a cross-functional and cross-hierarchical team to guide the implementation process. These teams will work with the VCCS team and EAB to structure the process. Your college leadership will determine the composition of each team.
