Bulldog Connect

Bulldog Connect is an implementation of the EAB Student Success Collaborative Campus platform designed to help us:

  • enhance the student experience,
  • improve early identification of students in difficulty,
  • facilitate the design and implementation of targeted and timely interventions,
  • impact retention and persistence rates,
  • improve operational efficiency and effectiveness, and
  • replace GradesFirst, which is no longer being supported. 

Bulldog Connect facilitates scheduling student appointments with faculty, advisors, and other offices on campus.  It pulls all student profile information into a single place and serves as a repository for advising notes. Additionally, it facilitates student progress reports, communication to sets of students, issuing alerts, and tracking/reporting of advising efforts.  Predictive analytics is also part of the system.   

Information about training can be found at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/studentaffairs/lrc/bulldogconnect/index.html

Additionally, with our subscription to the software platform, we are able to access student success resources from what EAB calls its Academic Affairs Forum. Among those resources are number of infographics that you might find of interest.
