So What is MAPWorks?

The MAP-Works Survey helps you and your advisors understand the elements that impact your social and academic success here at UMass Boston.  The University has invested in this program as a tool to help aid in student success.  On October 1, all students were emailed a link and information about this survey, requesting that it be completed by October 15, when it closes. 

Note: Despite the similarity in names, this survey is not related to the College of Management’s Management Achievement Program (MAP).

There are benefits to taking the survey:

  • Help us help you: Survey results will help advisors and administrators assess trends in student needs which may serve as guideposts to developing additional resources for success.
  • Help yourself: The Survey will give you and your advisor insights to your goals so we can develop a plan together to help you stay on track reaching them.

And of course there are incentives for you to complete the survey:

  • You will be entered in a raffle to win Priority Registration for the Spring 2013 semester.  Twenty students will win a chance to register for spring classes before anyone else – and you know how those CM classes can fill up!
  • You get 25 MAP Miles.  This might not sound like a lot, but when you calculate 75% of you miles, you may find it comes to an odd number – and these 25 miles might make the difference you need to reach this requirement.

When you link to the survey, you should use your full UMass Boston email address with and password to log in.  The survey will only be available October 1-15, 2012 – so you are encouraged to take the survey NOW!

If you were a student who took this as part of the pilot launch in the spring 2012 semester, you should still take again now.
