MAP-Works is a retention tool launched by MSU in the Fall of 2012.   MAP-Works is a web-based student retention and success program with one main purpose: to identify at-risk students early.  This is important because early identification of at-risk students provides faculty and staff necessary information so that we may efficiently and effectively identify and coordinate intervention efforts.  We want all of our Murray State students to be successful, and progress toward graduation.  This program will help us do just that.
