How can you use Navigate?

All faculty have the Professor role in Navigate. The Professor role allows you to easily interact with and provide support to the students you teach. From the Navigate Homepage you can see the students and courses you teach, easily write emails and text messages, and issue alerts to notify college student support offices of students who might benefit from additional resources.

As a full-time member of the faculty, you have two roles in Navigate, the Professor role and the Staff role. The Staff role allows you to act as a faculty advisor to students in your department, as well as perform various administrative functions in Navigate.

You can switch between these roles on the Navigate Homepage. When you initially log in to Navigate you will be brought to the Staff home page. To switch to the Professor home page, click on the triangle next to ‘Staff Home.’ Click on ‘Professor Home’ to be brought to your instructor page.

Navigate Staff includes a suite of functions to provide strategic care to students as well as administrative support to stakeholders throughout the college. Please note that there are different levels of security access in the Staff role. If you feel as though you should have additional Navigate access, you can speak with the chair of your department.
