At St. Mary’s University (TX), the Office of Student Retention manages the RattlerNAVIGATE program, “a cross-campus initiative to positively impact student success with the goal of increasing retention rates, timely degree attainment, academic achievement and student engagement.” The three pillars include Strategic Care for faculty and staff, Smart Guidance for students and Intelligence for administrators. RattlerNAVIGATE touts itself to students as “A mobile advisor that gets you from orientation to graduation.”
The Strategic Care component for faculty/staff is available via a special portal, offering a place to put appointment summaries and notes, alerts and cases, assigned students, saved lists and more. The Smart Guidance app for students offers resources, to-dos, tips, notifications, study buddies, ease in scheduling tutoring and peer coaching appointments, and more. And the Intelligence features for administrators offer success markers, institutional reports, intervention effectiveness analytics and more.
