Navigate is a student success management system created by the Educational Advisory Board (EAB). At San Diego State University (SDSU), we refer to this system on campus as “SDSU Navigate,” and sometimes casually as "EAB."  SDSU Navigate is a collaborative effort between the Division of Faculty Advancement & Student Success (representing Academic Affairs) and Student Affairs and Campus Diversity.

SDSU Navigate is an online tool to connect students to faculty, staff, and campus resources. The system links SDSU faculty, staff and students in a coordinated network designed to help students as they “navigate” their way through college starting with registration, meeting with advisors, scheduling classes, applying for financial aid and other tasks leading to graduation.

Benefits of this single, accessible repository include improved communication, coordination, efficiency, transparency, and a more personalized student experience in advising.
