Minority Advisement Program
The Minority Advisement Program (MAP) was established in 1986 to enhance the academic welfare of minority students in the University System of Georgia. The Minority Advisement Program is a peer mentor program designed to assist minority freshmen with their transition from high school to college and to facilitate a successful adjustment to Georgia Southern University. MAP is centered on minority first year students, but is open to any student seeking its services. With the assistance of peer leaders (MAP Sponsors), MAP tries to provide minority students with a wide variety of programs that assist them with the successful adjustment to Georgia Southern University academically and socially. Services include personal assistance to obtain resources available in areas such as academic advisement, financial aid, career counseling, tutoring, and campus orientation.
