MAP-Works® (Making Achievement Possible) is a comprehensive student retention and success program designed for first year students. MAP-Works® identifies struggling students early in the term, allowing for immediate student support using critical campus outreach efforts.  MAP-Works® positively impacts student success and retention by motivating, informing and coordinating timely and effective intervention by faculty/staff. Appalachian State University is implementing MAP-Works® during the fall 2011 semester with a sample of the incoming freshmen student body. Results of retention and success will be made available upon pilot program completion.
