Supporting Campus Advising with Technologies and Data
With the map of available advising technologies now firmly defined, the OSS Technology Solutions Team’s goals will focus on helping campus advisors integrate the functionality and data into the flow of their advising practices. The team will also be working with several of the units within OSS to create the foundations of a data model that allows for a more methodical, automated way of assessing their programs.

The Map of the New Advising Technologies
During the 2015/16 Academic Year the OSS Tech Team, in partnership with the Registrar’s Office and IT’s Enterprise Information Systems team, kicked off the first of several software implementations aimed enhancing academic advising by empowering campus advisors with the data needed for proactive outreach to students.
The robust functionality contained in the new advising software applications have allowed UM to consolidate 11+ homegrown software tools into highly integrated best-of-breed technologies intended to help campus advisors streamline their advising practices and improve their tracking and outreach to at-risk students. The move into the industry’s best-of-breed software applications also positions UM to be nimble and responsive as new student success initiatives are developed.
