Starfish for Faculty & Advisors

Starfish connects students to the information, resources, and services they need to succeed through a personalized success network. It houses an early warning feature that allows faculty to provide student performance feedback early in the semester, connecting students with the support they need.

Starfish helps you ... 

  • Set up your office hours and schedule appointments with students
  • Raise early alerts (flags & kudos) for students
  • Find a “one-stop-shop” organized list of students you are connected to (advisee/advisor relationship, professor/student relationship, etc.)
  • Send messages to students you are connected to.
