The University of Florida recently announced the COMPASS program, a multi-year effort to unify and modernize its student systems. The COMPASS acronym stands for Campus-wide Modernization Program to Advance Student Services.
Over the next five years, COMPASS will be implemented in a series of releases, starting with student self-service functions that migrated to ONE.UF on February 19. Included in this effort are a CRM (Constituent Relationship Management) system and an evolving learning ecosystem designed to support and promote collaboration and empowerment among and between UF’s 16 colleges and the core offices. When fully implemented, the COMPASS program is expected to unify student services systems, transforming the experience and management of student data to benefit students as well as faculty and staff.
The UF community is encouraged to learn more about COMPASS by attending an upcoming “kick-off” session. The next sessions are scheduled for March 10 and March 18. Dates, times, and locations of COMPASS events, with links to register (all events are free), are on the COMPASS website. The March 10 kick-off session will be recorded and available online.
Anyone with questions about the COMPASS program may submit them via the https://compass.ufl.edu/outreach/ web form.
