What is GO-MAP?
As a unit of the University of Washington Graduate School, the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) is committed to enhancing equity and social progression to promote the success of graduate students of color at our Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses.
For nearly 50 years, GO-MAP has worked with graduate students, staff, faculty, and campus leadership to develop initiatives that strengthen graduate diversity, enhance academic opportunities, and encourage and support research exploring cultural diversity. GO-MAP aims to cultivate a culturally and ethnically diverse academic and social environment in which all graduate students can learn and thrive while attending the University of Washington.
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 of color can be a part of the GO-MAP community by attending events, volunteering as an Outreaching Grad (OG), or 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.
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.
