St. Cloud State joined EAB's Navigate platform (formerly the Student Success Collaborative) to improve campus engagement, retention, and graduation rates by empowering faculty and staff to better support all of our students.
In particular, we recognize that we need to identify and engage at-risk students before their time to degree is significantly increased, before they can no longer afford to attend, and before they decide to leave St. Cloud State because of any situation we could have helped them resolve. Improving our communication strategies and expanding our use of predictive analytics will help ensure that students who enroll at St. Cloud State stay enrolled, make timely progress toward a degree, and graduate with a strong sense of purpose.
While each student will ultimately define what success means for him or her, we have the responsibility to do everything we can to make sure that they all have the opportunity to reach their personal, academic, and professional goals.
Finally, we want to emphasize that we have partnered closely with the Student Government Association in bringing Navigate to our campus, and students have played an integral role in the implementation process. They recognize the potential for this platform to promote our students’ success, and we take the responsibility of this partnership very seriously.
