Office of Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (GSEE)

As a unit of the UW Graduate School, the Office of Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (GSEE) is committed to enhancing equity and social progression to promote the success of graduate students impacted by racism and its intersections* at our Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses.

For 50 years, GSEE 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. GSEE aims to cultivate a culturally and ethnically diverse academic and social environment in which all graduate students can learn and thrive while attending the UW.

GSEE promotes and supports:

  • outreach, recruitment and graduate student success
  • professional development and community building
  • graduate funding opportunities
  • scholarship and research
  • advocacy, consulting and advising
