The Student Success Collaborative (SSC) platform is being implemented as a five-year pilot project on Memorial's St. John's campus. The primary focus of the first phase of SSC is first-year undergraduate students in 2018-2019.

Memorial has adopted SSC with the goal of providing the highest level of support to students along their academic journey, ultimately increasing retention by connecting students with the right services and supports at the right time.

SSC’s combination of analytics, technology and consulting will enable Memorial to:

  • improve student retention and graduation rates
  • enhance and co-ordinate the student experience at Memorial
  • empower students to succeed with the personalized support of advisors and resources tailored to meet their needs

SSC’s system has two major components: the Navigate for Students mobile application for students and the Navigate platform for faculty and staff. 

Navigate for Students

Navigate for Students is a free mobile app that helps students from orientation to graduation. The app helps students navigate degree requirements and stay on top of important dates and deadlines, and book appointments with advisors – all in one place.


Navigate is a comprehensive advising platform that includes tools for scheduling advising appointments and enabling communications between advisors and students. Navigate will help Memorial provide the right support to students at the right time, and eliminate barriers to degree completion.
