This paper reports on the development of NavigateMe, an online tool currently being trialled at the University of New South Wales. The tool is a student-centred initiative designed to support students in accessing university-wide, faculty-based and external information and support services to improve and enhance their learning and university life. Based on responses provided, an action plan is produced that allows students to reflect on their current situation and be directed to specific services and information according to their individual needs and interest at any point in their student life. The tool was developed through a collaborative and iterative process in consultation with staff, students and faculties. The tool is in the strategic plan approved by the DVC(A) and it has received significant funding from the university.
