MAP-Works Retention Platform

MAP-Works’s retention effectiveness blends sound student development theory with proven research, powerful data analytics and years of experience. It combines the power of real-time analytics, strategic communications, and differentiated user interfacing, with integrated statistical testing and outcomes reporting. MAP-Works offers a holistic approach to student success and retention.

Identify and Motivate

MAP-Works incorporates prominent student development and learning theories and integrates both profile and student experience data to ensure accurate identification of at-risk students. The platform then provides the motivation faculty and staff need to effectively invest their limited time and resources into helping the right students. More effective student meetings take place because faculty and staff understand real student issues.


Through the MAP-Works interface, student assessment results are instantly available to faculty and staff to identify their at-risk students. They are provided with the right information at the right time to focus on the critical issues for each individual student.

Coordinate and Intervene

MAP-Works helps to coordinate your efforts s and communicate and collaborate with your colleagues across campus for more effective student interventions.


MAP-Works provides a robust management tool that measures impact, ensures accountability and manages the retention effort on you campus effectively.
