Program Overview

 

The NEACUHO Mentoring & Advancing Para-professional Students (MAPS) program is designed for undergraduate students entering their final collegiate year. Students are expected to be actively involved in the residential life program at their home institution. Those applying for the MAPS program are interested in the profession of residential life and are looking to gain more knowledge before entering the field.

  

What does this program entail?

 

Volunteering

Attendees will volunteer periodically throughout the duration of the conference. This experience not only gives back to the NEACUHO organization for providing the opportunity to attend the conference, but also allows attendees to network with professionals across the region.

Mentoring

One of the most valuable relationships built throughout the conference is between the attendees and professionals in the field they will meet during the course of the conference. Seasoned professionals attend this conference and love to speak with each MAPS attendee about any questions you may have about entering the field. We encourage you during the course of the conference to meet professionals from across the region.

Conference Sessions

Attendees will have several opportunities to participate in sessions during the course of the conference. Some sessions you will be attending with those at the conference while a few others will be for those in this program to learn about entering the field, graduate school, and job interviewing. There will also be a session to give you more information regarding what NEACUHO is all about and how to stay involved after this conference.

 

Cost of the Program

 

All NEACUHO MAPS attendees will have their hotel accommodations paid for through the conference. Attendees will be responsible for the $200 registration fee. If an attendee is concerned about covering the registration fee and their institution is unable to support them, the attendee can apply for NEACUHO Legacy Funds. If you are selected be sure to express interest in Legacy Funds when registering for the conference. Transportation to and from the conference site is not included.
