Prospective Student Days
Admitted prospective graduate students of color are invited to join us for Prospective Student Days (PSDs). This event provides the opportunity for prospective students to learn more about the network of support for diverse graduate students on the UW campus, including:
- Student-led discussion on perspectives of being a diverse graduate student of color
- Opportunities to receive important information on campus resources from representatives from graduate housing, financial aid, fellowships and other student service offices
- Opportunities to meet and network with current diverse graduate students, faculty and staff

Drop in to meet new and returning graduate students. Our GO-MAP and Graduate School community will be on hand to welcome you with treats, refreshments and smiles.
GO-MAP Power Hour
Power Hour seminars are intimate talks between graduate students and featured faculty members or community/business leaders. Topics range from how to network at professional conference to career opportunities in non-academic settings to tips for successful entrepreneurship.
If you only have the opportunity to attend one GO-MAP event this year, make it this signature event! "Getting Connected" is a chance to meet new and returning graduate students of color, faculty and staff from all disciplines as well as benefit from faculty and student panels about how to thrive in graduate school. Join us for good food and great company!
Graduate and Undergraduate Diversity Mixer
In partnership with the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, GO-MAP presents this opportunity for undergraduate students of color to learn about graduate school and for graduate students of color to share their experiences, connect with other graduate students and network across disciplines.
Mangels Lecture Series
The Mary Ann and John Mangels Endowed Lecture Series brings to the UW scholarship and research that is relevant to current social, cultural and academic issues. The Mangels lectures feature minority scholars and thinkers from a range of disciplines for the benefit of minority students, the campus community and the general public. The lectures are free and open to the public; however, online registration is required to guarantee seats.
Spring Quarter Reception
The 2012 Spring Quarter Reception is a chance for current graduate students of color, faculty and staff to reconnect with each other and to help us welcome admitted prospective graduate students of color to the University of Washington!
An important part of GO-MAP's Prospective Student Days, during which prospective students of color are invited to visit the UW campus, our Spring Quarter Reception enhances departmental visits by giving visiting students the opportunity to meet current students, faculty and staff from across campus that are part of the broad network of support available to them at the UW.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet some of next year's incoming class, to share your experiences and tips about graduate school and life in Seattle, and of course to re-connect with current graduate students and colleagues. Staff, faculty and students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend and enjoy good food and great company!
End of the Year Celebration
The End of the Year Celebration is an opportunity to celebrate UW's outstanding graduate students of color and recognize their hard work and achievement. Please join us for one last opportunity to reconnect with people you haven't seen since the last GO-MAP reception and say goodbye to those who are moving on!
