A special new employee Mav Life experience is available with limited features for employee onboarding and is currently being further developed. It does not require login. Be among the first to try Mav Life for Employees (Version 1.0)! 

The app was created after staff and students emphasized the need for such a tool. The app-based platform aligns with how students prefer to receive communication today. The content was strategically chosen to enhance and streamline the student experience. 

The MavClass app was created with a very specific focus on classroom-based resources. We learned a lot since it was first launch approximately four years ago. Based off feedback from that app, we have launched Mav Life as a much broader and encompassing app with very defined audiences and goals.

There are filters put in place within the app to remove inappropriate language. While this should catch most items, technology is not perfect. If you ever have questions or concerns, or need to report inappropriate behavior within the app, contact the IT Solutions Center right away at 507.389.6654 or

IT Solutions served as a “project manager” working with campus representatives and an outside vendor, Ready Education, to develop the app. After interviews with potential 3rdparty app developers, Ready Education was chosen because of their experience with Higher Education (they have launched 350+ campus apps), cost efficiency and partner-based approach.
