The Mentor Advocate Partnership (MAP) is a volunteer mentoring program for MIT students that seek to foster their holistic development along both academic and non-academic dimensions. The OME created MAP because building strong relationships throughout the college experience plays an integral role in academic success and personal satisfaction at MIT. At the core of MAP is a sincere, trusting partnership between a student and staff/faculty that has the potential to persist throughout the undergraduate years. In its second year, MAP was expanded to involve 16 new mentors and 33 freshmen. Three OME Deans and the OME Faculty Director continued to mentor 17 sophomores through the program.

The Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming is pleased to announce that we will be piloting a new program for the fall of 2008. The T.E.A.M.S (Together Everyone Achieves More Success) program will benefit all varsity athletes, but target athletes from the Class of 2012.
One upperclassman from each varsity sport will act as a liaison between our office and their team. This student representative will deliver academic resources and programming information to their team. This student representative will receive training from our office on how to best deliver this information. These resources will include but are not limited to: important academic dates for freshmen and the specific resources (Mentorship Opportunities, Learning Strategies, IAP, UROP, and Academic Advising) that our office provides to freshmen.
