What is the MAPS program?

The purpose of MAPS (Maximizing Academic and Professional Success) is to help students successfully transition into the college, become part of the college community, and learn and apply academic success strategies. The program uses experienced students who have excelled academically to teach others how to plan and organize their time, study, take tests, and use the resources available on campus. Basically, MAPS helps students quickly adapt to college life and learn what it takes to be successful in the College of Engineering. The program offers peer coaching and Supplemental Instruction as its basic programs but also exposes students to other resources on campus including student organizations. Students who regularly participate in MAPS earn higher GPAs (> 3.0) and are more likely to graduate than other students. More information can be found on the MAPS website.
