EAB/iFisk (Navigate) for Faculty and Staff
Why use EAB/iFisk?
The goal for Fisk University’s partnership with EAB is to help improve retention and graduation rates by identifying areas of additional support for students to complete their degrees and create roadmaps to academic strengths and success. This student success management system will enable you to:
· Prioritize outreach and interaction with your students
- Engage in conversations with students who may have greater success outside their chosen major
- Simplify intervention by aggregating previously disparate data into a 360-view of student performance
- Evaluate and compare alternative major decisions based on predicted academic performance
- Proactively contact students to arrange advising or other student support services
