Dear Members of the Minority Interest Group and Minority Association of Pre-Health Students,
We hope this message finds you well and enjoying the beginning to a new semester. As many of you may remember, the Minority Interest Group (MIG) and the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS) have been actively discussing the possibility of merging our two student groups to create a stronger force on campus. On Monday, August 20, 2012, in a meeting with our club advisors, our two groups have made a collective, executive decision to officially unite our organizations under the name of MAPS. The details of the merge are discussed below. We look forward to an exciting year as we collectively strive to guide all minority pre-health students through a deeper exploration of healthcare. Join us for the first MAPS meeting of the year, Tuesday August 28, 2012 at 6:00pm in Dabney 220.
1. Formal Name: Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS)
- May be listed online as MAPS/MIG for the current academic year as we help students understand changes and recruit returning members.
2. Leadership Positions:
- The Co-Presidents of the former Minority Interest Group, De’Ja Alexander and Shaniqua Taylor, will join the current MAPS President and Vice President, Justin Hills and Kelcie Farrar, in the formation of a central Executive Board for the current academic year. The Executive Board will guide all other leadership postions and plan for the large group.
- All other leadership positions have been preserved and will continue to function as usual. For example, former chairs within MIG will collaborate with current MAPS chairs to increase the number of service and social events. Additionally, the treasurers and secretaries of each group will continue to be assigned specific tasks and serve in meaningful events.
- All Officers, please look for an e-mail regarding our first Officer Meeting this Sunday, August 26, 2012.
3. “Points System”
- MAPS will adopt a small “Points System” to keep members engaged and accountable throughout the academic year. To remain an active member of MAPS, students must attain 4 points per semester. Points are achievable by attending club meetings, participating in service events, and engaging in other MAPS activities. All points are equal in value; therefore, to achieve your 4 points, you may simply attend 4 meetings, or mix your involvement.
