The MAPS office provides inclusive and individualized support to boost your success at UCM.  Not sure what you need?  We can help with that too.

Common reasons you might use MAPS services:

  • Guidance or support in academic or social areas.
  • Talking to a peer who's been where you are.
  • Help staying motivated toward graduation.
  • Concerns about academic policies, discrimination, professor/student misunderstandings, financial aid, housing and more.


How we help

  • Mentorship Program - Helping you adjust to college life, and find the resources and connections you need.
