EAB: Navigate - Navigating the Home Page

Task: This article is intended for Advisors and Faculty Advisors. It describes what features to expect when logging in to Navigate. Navigate is an enterprise-level technology that links administrators, advisors, deans, faculty, other staff, and students in a coordinated care network designed to help schools proactively manage student success and deliver a return on education.


Navigating the Home Page

Adjunct faculty are given the Faculty (Professor) role; the Staff role is just for the landing page which allows them to set Availability within the "meet with my faculty" case unit. They can only view the profiles and search the students in their courses.

There are many important features on the advisor's home page. When a user with an advisor role logs in the home page will display like this:

Staff Homepage menu bar in EAB Navigate

If users have more than one type of profile in the application they can use the chevron next to "staff home" to toggle to different roles.  Options would include:

  • Staff = Advisor
  • Student = User has a student profile
  • Professor = User has a faculty profile
