Graduate Excellence through Diversity

The Office of Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (GSEE) has been housed in the University of Washington’s Graduate School since 1970. We take pride in focusing on graduate students of color across all disciplines and campuses.

Mission Statement

GSEE provides leadership and advocacy to achieve equitable representation, access and success for graduate students of color at the University of Washington.

Vision Statement

We foster, expand and strengthen equitable and sustainable environments and practices that promote success in educating a diverse graduate student body.

While GSEE’s events and programming are geared towards graduate students 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.
