Virginia Tech has partnered with the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to utilize Navigate, a platform that combines predictive analytics and communication tools for academic advising and tutoring. The goal for this partnership is to ultimately improve retention and graduation rates by identifying areas of additional support needed for students to complete their degrees and suggest roadmaps to a degree based on their academic strengths and past successes.
Due to the decentralized nature of advising at Virginia Tech, some colleges are utilizing Navigate for appointment scheduling along with individual advisors in other departments. The Student Success Center also offers appointments scheduling for tutoring services (1:1 and group tutoring) as well as registration for their Student Success Seminars. We also have a growing list of offices who are part of the referral system which allows for a more proactive engagement of students through the referral process.
If you have any questions or concerns about the platform, please email EABHelp@vt.edu.
