GO-MAP: Supporting Graduate Students of Color at the University of Washington
The GO-MAP fun continues over the summer! Join us at Green Lake for a summer social, catch up with old friends, and meet new ones!
GO-MAP's end-of-year celebration is always a great time. People look good, feel good, and dance good!
Throughout the year, GO-MAP organizes opportunities for students to learn, network, volunteer, or just have fun!
Graduate Excellence through Diversity
Founded in 1970, the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) is at the heart of the Graduate School’s commitment to expanding graduate education to underrepresented minoritized (URM) communities. GO-MAP helps create an inclusive and equitable campus environment through its focused efforts on the following:
- Outreach and Recruitment
- Prospective Student Days
- Undergraduate outreach
- Graduate Funding
- $1.5 million in graduate funding, most commonly in recruitment dollars
- Scholarship and Research
- Dissertation and publication fellowships
- RA funding
- Advocacy, Consulting and Advising
- Co-leads Graduate Departmental Diversity Committee meetings
- Provides funding and feedback based on Departmental Diversity Plans
- Educational, Personal and Professional Development Opportunities
- Getting Connected
- Power Hours
- Real Talk Tuesdays
- Social Networking Events
- Spring Soiree
- Staying Connected
- Summer Social
While GO-MAP’s events and programming are geared towards graduate student of color, they are open to all University of Washington graduate students, faculty and staff, especially those interested in supporting and increasing a racially diverse graduate student population.
