What is MAPP?

 The Multicultural Assistance Peer Program (MAPP) is designed to assist first-year multicultural students transitioning to the university by providing them with a trained mentor for their critical first year. The program works to establish positive academic, social, and cultural networks.

The MAPP Mentor Program strives to:

  • Support First Year Students in their transition to USC
  • Encourage successful academic and personal development.
  • Promote student involvement.
  • Enrich the connections of USC students to each other, the campus, and the community.

How to Participate

The Multicultural Assistance Peer Program, which is part of the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs at USC, is dedicated to celebrating the cultural diversity of all students, staff, and community members by offering support programs and activities to all students. Your participation makes our program stronger.
