What is EAB Navigate?

EAB stands for the Educational Advisory Board; NKU Navigate was Student Success Collaborative (SSC) before the name change.


What is the EAB Navigate?

NKU’s partnership with EAB will allow for the use of data analytics to enable actionable insight, improve cross-divisional collaborations, and continue to elevate our service standards. The NKU Navigate platform will use predictive analytics to support departments to take action and target subsets of students based on data, while the case management functionality will help streamline direct support to students. Specifically, the predictive model will help us identify academic strategies for student success, including strategies around the curriculum and proactive interventions around academic success indicators.


Why are we using this platform?

NKU Naviagte is a program that is primarily meant to help us:

  1. Make better-informed decisions, including through the identification of academic success indicators;
  2. Increase the effectiveness of our interventions;
  3. Increase communication between NKU and students; and
  4. Provide faculty and staff with hands-on predictive analytics.


What is happening to SAP/myNKU?

SAP/myNKU is staying.

You will still use SAP in a variety of ways:

1.     To lift advising (or other) holds;

2.     To run a degree audit;

3.     To issue permits;

4.     To check midterm grades;

5.     Course Registration;

6.     Change of major and more…

When you’re working directly with students, think of myNKU as the “registration” part of meeting with a student and NKU Navigate as the “advising” part. NKU Navigate is designed to help you jumpstart developmental conversations in a proactive, academics-based manner.


What is happening to Perceptive Content (ImageNow)?

Perceptive Content is staying. While NKU Navigate does offer some document management options, Perceptive Content is currently our document management software.


Which students are in the NKU Navigate platform?

We have loaded all students who have an open matriculation window into the platform.


When will I get training?

Training is ongoing and you can check training opportunities on the training link.

Can NKU Navigate replace my scheduling software?

NKU Navigate is NKU's official platform for scheduling advising appointments.


Will I be required to use the platform?

NKU Navigate offers some cutting-edge analytics as well as a user-friendly student overview. We think you’ll want to use the platform once you see how it can integrate into your current practices.
