The university has partnered with the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to enhance the functionality of the myKnight STAR (Navigate360) platform, the university’s student success CRM. New, expanded features are coming to myKnight STAR! The ongoing project brings myKnight STAR to student phones as a mobile app, along with new features like an academic planner and a tool to engage prospective Knights. The expansion is a collaborative partnership between the Division of Student Success and Well-Being, UCF IT and external consultants from Deloitte.
