EAB Navigate

Navigate is a web-based tool from the Education Advisory Board (EAB) that allows advisors to document outreach, view support history, and review data to make informed decisions on student success. Coordinated and informed approaches to supporting students reflect the 2030 Strategic Plan for being a Students First campus while using tools to Connect & Celebrate with advisees. 

Log In to Navigate

  • Access to the Navigate Platform

    EAB Navigate identifies different “roles” within the tool, which depend on your job responsibilities. If you are interested in how these roles are determined, please contact stephanie.torrez@unco.edu 

    • All faculty with Banner Advisor access are added to Navigate during the onboarding process.
    • Professional staff advisors and support specialists are given access as appropriate to their job function. To request access to the platform, they must submit an SSC Navigate Security form via OnBase.
    • Students do not have access to Navigate and will not see the notes or activity you input unless they work as student employees and require a limited access role.
      • All students can schedule appointments, reply to emails, and respond to text messages sent by advisors through the platform.

    You will log in using your first.last@unco.edu and password.

  • Data and Updates

    The data in Navigate is refreshed each night and syncs to our Banner system.

    • Navigate shows the student's major, minor, any holds, and class schedule along with contact information.
    • Notes and appointment reports created by advisors can be viewed immediately in the student history.

    Navigate provides a predictive score for student success based on the synced data. UNC uses a persistence model to predict the likelihood of a student to persist to the next term.  As an advisor, you can see a low, medium, or high  support indicator to help you identify student performance and adjust outreach practices. 

    Low/Green = low level need for added support

    High/Red = high level need for added support

    The level of support indicator is intended to inform outreach and intervention campaigns to those who would most benefit from additional support.

  • Training and Support

    The EAB Navigate Help Center is also a great resource for tips and tutorials – just click on the “?” in the top right corner when you’re logged into the platform.

    Advisors and appropriate support staff can complete a self-paced training in the Undergraduate Advising Canvas Shell for EAB Navigate. The training includes:

    • Overview of the platform features
    • How to Input and View Notes and Reports
    • Advanced Uses for Retention and Success Strategies

    You can also start with the UNC Campus Advisors Guide.

  • Errors and Troubleshooting

    If you encounter technical difficulties with the platform, please submit a Technical Support Center Ticket.

    In your ticket, provide details about what page you are trying to load and the nature of the issue.

Advising Hub

The Advising Hub provides information for students, advisors, and support people. You can review policy, access shortcuts to the catalog, and find answers to common advising and student success questions. The primary site is student-facing, so you can feel confident sending the link to your advisees.

Advisors are encouraged to refresh their knowledge in the four NACADA competency areas by completing the annual training through Canvas. Content and activities relate to the Relational, Conceptual, Informational, and Technological competencies needed for effective advising practice.

Professional Advisor Shared Statement of Practice:

UNC professional advisors and coaches provide holistic, inclusive support helping students navigate the institution to meet their academic and personal goals by building meaningful relationships and enacting intentional advising practices. Our advising practices prioritize equity and inclusion to serve as a welcoming and brave space of support to all UNC students. Advisors attend at least two events focused on IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism) EACH semester to align with UNC’s Community Principles.
