Mentoring, Advocacy and Peer Support (MAPS)


Supporting Your Success

The Office of Mentoring, Advocacy and Peer Support (MAPS) offers you a supportive, inclusive, and student-centered approach. We provide individualized advocacy, academic resources, and social support to boost your success.

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

With academic support and adjusting to college:

  • Suspension Waiver Program - A selective program for high-potential students who have previously been suspended due to low grades.
  • Mentorship Program - Helping you adjust to college life, and find the resources and connections you need.
  • Academic Alerts - ARCs and MAPS staff will reach out to you when your instructors let us know they're concerned about how you're doing in class.


With creating a welcoming and inclusive campus:


With victim advocacy and support resources:
