WELCOME TO THE ADJUNCT BULLETIN

Dear NLU Adjunct Community,

We are excited to announce the launch of EAB Campus for the University this Spring! EAB Campus is our student success management system, a comprehensive online early alert platform that provides necessary tools to advisors, faculty, academic support specialists, student experience staff, and others to better collaborate and assist students on their journey to graduation.

EAB’s Campus Platform will enable NLU to offer a best-in-class student experience through providing faculty and staff access to real-time student data, allowing for personalized communication, targeted interventions based on early alerts, and aligned wrap-around supports.
