UIA Monitoring Advising Analytics to
Promote Success (MAAPS) Grant

Together with our UIA partners across the country, UCF is engaged in a four-year, $8.9 million Department of Education First in the World grant to evaluate the effectiveness of advising on increasing retention, progression, and graduation rates for low-income and first-generation students. Via randomized control trial of 10,000 students across 11 UIA member campuses, we are scaling and assessing the delivery of systematic, proactive, analytics-based advising interventions on traditionally underserved college students. UCF’s MAAPS advisors are assigned to follow and support a population of approximately 500 first time in college students, from entry to graduation.
