The Mentor Advocate Partnership (MAP) is a volunteer mentoring program for MIT students seeking to foster their holistic development along both academic and nonacademic dimensions. Run by the Office of Minority Education, the MAP program is designed to help first-year students by building their relationships with staff and faculty, monitoring their academic performance and personal well-being, and offering encouragement and a proactive support network.

MAP is entering its fifth year and continues to grow, gaining more participants each year. At the core of MAP is a partnership between protégés and their mentors that is based on trust and connectivity, and has the potential to persist throughout the undergraduate years and beyond.
