Pooja Agarwal, UW-Green Bay’s Navigate App Administrator & Training Specialist in the Division of Student Access and Success is the winner of EAB’s Student Success Collaborative – Excellence in Technology Administration Award.

EAB’s Excellence in Technology Administration Award recognizes an individual who has shown exceptional dedication to improving their technology configurations and best practices, and who goes above and beyond in their commitment to student success through the help of EAB technology. This is the ninth year in a row that EAB has recognized outstanding achievements in student success. Awardees are chosen from among the colleges, universities, and individuals that use Navigate, EAB’s student success management system, or Starfish, the student success platform EAB acquired in 2021.

“Students, faculty, and campus staff have become savvier with respect to combining both online and in-person student support services,” said EAB President of Technology, Scott Schirmeier. “The winners of EAB’s 2022 Student Success Collaborative Awards are leading the way in rethinking the student support model and using technology in creative ways to keep students on track to graduate.”

Agarwal’s efforts have been integral to UW-Green Bay’s adoption of Navigate by working with offices across the university to implement the platform in order to positively impact student success. Her work continues through leading implementation, maintenance and development of the app through ongoing communications with staff, faculty, and administrators. Agarwal was presented with the award at the recent EAB CONNECTED22 conference which was attended by 1,800 participants from around the country.
