MAPSS Campus Days

Due to ongoing public health concerns, limited access to many campus buildings for visitors, and the University's continued effort to reduce density on campus, most of this year's campus days will be virtual. We will host an in-person component on April 11-12. Please check back for more updates. For information on the University’s response to COVID, please go to

Register for Virtual Campus Days

April 4 - 8

MAPSS Virtual Campus Days will kick off with two welcome sessions on Monday, April 4th at 11:00 am CDT and 7:00 pm CDT where you can learn more about our program and ask questions of our faculty leadership and senior academic staff. 

Between April 4th and April 8th we will host discipline-specific meetings where you can hear from Department leadership about their faculty and current research. We will also host sessions with faculty representatives of our seven interdisciplinary concentrations. We will host a series of student discussions in partnership with the Office of International Affairs and the Center for Identity and Inclusion (Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and Student Disability Services). Finally, we hope that you will join us for a virtual social event where you can chat informally with current students and recent alums about their experience in the program.

Please view our full schedule for recorded sessions. We will upload links as these videos become available. Check back soon!

In addition, please consider registering for one-on-one meetings with our staff and program leadership. View links to their virtual office hours here

Although class visits are not possible at this time, we encourage you to look over syllabi from current and previous courses.

Current MAPSS Students are the best resource to learn about the MAPSS experience. We have organized a group of students you can contact directly by email to get answers about life in the program. They are open to sharing their unique perspective as a student with you.

In-person Campus Days

April 11 - 12 

In-person Campus Days will give admitted students an opportunity to visit our campus, meet with faculty and staff, and socialize with current students in our program. Please view our full schedule here. 

Those who visit in person will be responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodations and will be eligible for up to $200 in travel reimbursement. In particular, anyone who lives more than 100 miles from campus can be reimbursed for hotel or airfare expenses with appropriate receipts. Anyone who lives more than 25 miles from campus can be reimbursed for their total round-trip car mileage by providing the dates of travel, the total number of miles covered, their starting point, and their return location. Each prospective student will need to complete a travel voucher form, and submit their receipts for travel (which must show proof of payment on the receipt with the last four digits of credit card number). If you have any questions regarding reimbursement, please reach out to Budget and Programs Administrator Daniel Duhon at

If you have questions, please be in touch with any of our preceptors, our Student Affairs Administrator, or our senior academic staff.

We look forward to meeting you!
