Johns Hopkins University has selected Stellic as the new universitywide platform for student success, academic management, and degree audit, choosing to move to a modern, responsive tool that receives high marks for its intuitive user interface and flexible functionality.
The platform, originally created by students at Carnegie Mellon University, was selected from a group of 11 products as part of a comprehensive process designed to find a solution that best meets the needs of the university and its students.
"We are excited about this partnership with Stellic and are looking forward to an improved experience overall for JHU students and the staff and faculty supporting them on their academic journeys," said Rachelle Hernandez, vice provost for student affairs.
The nearly two-year evaluation process, which was part of the Student Service Excellence Initiative, included input from academic advisors, academic program coordinators, managers, faculty, and students from each of JHU's nine academic divisions. From those conversations, four priority features emerged:
- A central note-taking repository for advising notes
- An early warning/alert system to enable advisors to identify at-risk students/learners
- A robust degree audit and academic planning system
- A dashboard making it simple for advisors to access a comprehensive record of student/learner academic status
Stellic will replace Conclusive, which has been in use at various schools within the university since 2010.
"Stellic is a powerful tool that will help students understand their degree requirements and plan their time at JHU effectively," said Amynah Mithani, associate vice provost and university registrar.
The implementation of Stellic across the university is expected to take two years. The SSEI project team, with direction from executive sponsors in academic and student affairs, will work with Stellic and all stakeholders across all JHU divisions to develop and execute implementation and transition plans.
