Need some positive psychology expertise in your school, business, or organization? There are now more than 500 MAPP graduates from the University of Pennsylvania program. They live around the world, and they pursue a wide range of applications of positive psychology. We invite you to browse our Directory to find people whose expertise may serve your application needs and/or who may be in your geographical location.
If you are a MAPP alum, you can log in to see the fete/summit history page with pointers to artifacts from previous year's fetes and summits, including pre-reads and presentation slides. If we receive slides from this year's speakers, we will share them via that page.
Watch your Newsbriefs for information about massive MAPP meetups about issues related to Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter. We gather to find ways that we can use our combined expertise to contribute to greater world-wide well-being in these times of stress and change.

There is something intangible that the MAPP alumni have. We call it “MAPP magic.” It is a deep sense of love, kindness, and shared purpose that we experience when we go through the MAPP program at UPENN. One of our goals is to keep the MAPP magic alive and share it with others throughout the world. We cannot wait to share our passion about positive psychology with you!
With love, The MAPP alumni
