Member Assistance Program


The NCATC Member Assistance Program (MAP) is a benefit that assists member colleges to develop or improve Advanced Technology Centers (ATCs).  MAP services for ATCs include:

    • Business and strategic plans
    • Business and community focus forums
    • Economic development surveys
    • Facility design concepts
    • Management structures
    • Marketing
    • Program development
    • Technology plans

MAP Consultant Teams

MAP Consultant Team members are carefully selected to meet your needs, and your institution approves all team members.  Team members are chosen from NCATC colleges with successful ATC programs, and each consultant is a recognized leader in his or her chosen field.

The MAP Process

When your institution requests a MAP, the NCATC Executive Director schedules a meeting with your institution to determine the scope of work.  The consulting team is selected based upon the needs of your institution.  The full team will visit your institution, complete the requested service, and deliver a final written report per your specifications.

MAP Fees

The MAP is an NCATC member benefit.  Accordingly, the cost for MAP consultation services is significantly less than comparable services from a consulting company.  The MAP costs cover consultant expenses and a modest stipend.  All costs are detailed and approved by your institution prior to initiating services.
