MAPS NEWS - January 21 2013
Statement to the Membership from the Board of Directors
Disclosure of Financial Statement as of December of 2011
The McMaster Association of Part-Time Students (MAPS) was established in 1979 to
represent the interests of undergraduate part-time degree students and certificate/diploma
students. All degree students enrolled in 17 or fewer units and all CCE students (regardless of course load) are members of MAPS.
Juggling home, work and school requires a great deal of
organization and support, and it was in response to these particular needs that
MAPS was first established. Our logo of three connecting chevrons is
a stylistic conception of the interaction between those three major components
of a part-time student's life.
What does MAPS do?
- Represents the needs and concerns of
part-time students within various academic and administrative committees.
- Lobbies for increased course
availability and accessibility
- Lobbies for extended services that
include longer library, bookstore and cafeteria hours.
- Provides an office in the McMaster
University Student Centre, Room 234, that stays open until 8:30 pm Monday
to Thursday to accommodate evening students, where students can register
for courses on SOLAR, and access personal academic and financial
information on MUGSI
- Provides one-on-one training for SOLAR
- Publishes a handbook that guides you
through the University maze.
- Provides three computers in the office
for part-time student use
- Counsels students regarding university
procedures and course availability.
- Provides bursaries to part-time
students, recognizing the financial constraints they have
- Celebrates the academic achievements and
community participation of part-time students with the MAPS Gold Medal,
the Centennial Awards and Martin W. Johns Award. These awards, along with
other university awards for part-time students, are presented at the MAPS
annual awards dinner in late November.
