UW Graduate School

What is GO-MAP?

As a unit of the University of Washington’s Graduate School for over 40 years, the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) is committed to serving the needs of underrepresented graduate students of color to enhance equity and graduate student success. GO-MAP aims to cultivate a culturally and ethnically diverse academic, educational and social environment in which all students can learn and thrive while attending the University of Washington. In working closely with graduate students, faculty, and staff, GO-MAP strives to strengthen and maintain campus diversity while enhancing academic opportunities for graduate students of color and encouraging scholarship and research that explores cultural diversity.

GO-MAP promotes and supports:

  • Outreach, Recruitment and Graduate Student Success
  • Professional Development and Community Building
  • Graduate Funding Opportunities
  • Scholarship and Research
  • Advocacy, Consulting and Advising

How can I become a part of GO-MAP?

UW graduate students can be a part of the GO-MAP community by attending events, volunteering as a Graduate Diversity Ambassador, or simply stopping by the office. GO-MAP does not have an application process – all graduate students are welcome to participate in our programming and events. We invite you to become a part of our campus community as you prepare for a rewarding life of work rooted in diverse intellectual engagement and experience.

GO-MAP is located in suite 034 of the Graduate School, on the ground floor of the Communications Building.

Come by and see us anytime! Our door is always open.
