Madison Advising Peers

The office of University Advising in collaboration with the Student Government Association  implemented a new JMU undergraduate peer advising program in the fall of 2009 called "Madison Advising Peers".  

Madison Advising Peers (MAP) are JMU students who care about their fellow students and are committed to helping them achieve their college goals. MAPs work in conjunction with faculty advisors by providing supplemental academic advising information and assist other JMU undergraduate students who may have general advising questions, but don't know where to go.   A MAP can be a supportive and friendly resource for students who feel overwhelmed and confused.
