Multicultural Achievement Peer Program

Multicultural Achievement Peer Program - If you are a multicultural student interested in academic success, cultural awareness, personal development and campus involvement, MCC's MAPP may be exactly what you need. MAPP is a student peer mentor program that connects Middlesex multicultural students with experienced MCC students who serve as mentors.

MAPP's mission is to provide positive experiences for multicultural students attending Middlesex and to foster student aspirations and achievement. Academic excellence is a priority, but students are also encouraged to get involved in extracurricular activities.

MAPP's goals are to provide mentors who will listen nonjudgmentally and provide support and advice in order to empower culturally diverse students to help each other and themselves. An overall goal is to ease the transition of culturally diverse students to college life.

Benefits to MAPP Students - Students who participate in MAPP gain access to peers who "know the ropes" at Middlesex. Mentors maintain regular contact with the students through phone calls, workshops, visits, trips and other activities. Mentors help students take advantage of all the opportunities the college has to offer. Students receive personalized assistance and support to achieve their academic and career goals and make new friends who have similar goals.

MAPP meets every Monday at 1:30pm in the Multicultural Center, Lowell Campus.
