Fall 2016: Encourage first-year students to take the Mapworks survey

November 18, 2016

The Fall Check-Up Mapworks survey is live for students to take between Nov. 13 to 27. Faculty and staff can help first-year students assess their transition to college by encouraging them to participate and take the survey. Mapworks is a student success program that has been on the UAA Campus since 2010. Degree-seeking first-time, first-year students who have earned 30 credits or less are expected to participate in the Mapworks program all year long.

Mapworks conducts four surveys each academic year: two in the fall and two in the spring. Students receive the survey in their UAA email. Upon completion of each survey, students may access their personalized success report based on their responses. The report is confidential, identifies individual strengths and challenges, offers tips to improve and encourages students to connect to resources at UAA. Students are encouraged to share their reports with advisors to make a plan for success as they transition to the demands of college.

Students who complete a survey are entered to win prizes. This fall, we will give away free food, parking permits, UAA Bookstore gift certificates, T-shirts, and an iPad!
