How Will the Graduation Planner Impact my Work?
Some faculty members may choose to use the Graduation Planner as an advising tool with students they mentor. However, Grad Planner is primarily a student-facing tool, and should have very little direct impact on faculty members unless they choose to engage with the tool.
What Can I Do in the Graduation Planner as a Faculty Member?
Faculty can use the Grad Planner in a number of different ways:
- Use the tool to advise individual students assigned to them for mentoring
- Review grad plans of individual students and make recommendations of courses and their proper sequence for the student
- Faculty members can make notes for students on the plans they review
