My Advancement Plan (MAP) Center

Welcome to the MAP (My Advancement Plan) Center. Located in Betz Tech Center, room 243, the purpose of the MAP Center is to help every student move forward (advance) in their educational and career goals.  We do this in four main areas: academic advising, career advising, transfer guidance and cocurricular planning.  Stop by for a visit, make an appointment or give us a call.

Here’s what we do to help you

Academic Advising

One of the greatest resource any student can have is an academic advisor to navigate the pathway to reaching your academic goals.  Every student will be assigned a faculty advisor who is an expert in their program.  During the first semester, all students will be assigned a Navigator through the MAP Center to ensure a great start at LCC.  The Navigator will work closely with the student to discuss programs offered at LCC, select courses, identify course prerequisites, modify class schedules and discuss steps necessary for transferring to a four year college or university.

Degree and Career Exploration

Many students come to college with unclear career goals and even those students who believe they have a definite idea of a career can find these plans change during their time at college.  The MAP Center can help in a number of ways.  We have two career assessment tools that students have found to be incredibly helpful in answering the important question – what do I do after college?  The MAP Center can help you showcase your education and skills by providing assistance with job search strategies, cover letters, resume, and interviewing.

Cocurricular Activities

Not all learning happens in the classroom.  At Lamar Community College, we encourage students to take advantage of opportunities outside the classroom to build leadership skills needed in the workplace, expand your knowledge of possible careers, and network with people that will make a difference in your future.
