The "Recruiting Graduate Students" document above compiles "best practice" resources from websites of U.S graduate schools, as well as links to reports from the National Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals (NAGAP).
The above list is compiled from the Diversity Plans that University of Washington departments have submitted to GO-MAP as part of their requests for funding for new students. Thanks to over 40 departments that yearly submit these plans. They provide thoughtful action items and reflective commentary that assist in clarifying departmental goals and procedures and help all of us identify ways to improve our recruitment and retention of minority and underrepresented students. In some instances, these Best Practices are drawn directly from departmental plans; in other instances, they include Best Practices that GO-MAP has instituted; still, others are combinations of several Best Practices.
The National Name Exchange is a consortia of universities which annually collect and exchange names of talented underrepresented ethnic minority students in their junior or senior year of their undergraduate education. The purpose of these exchanges is to ensure that participating universities continue to identify a pool of qualified students who can be recruited to the graduate programs at these "name-exchanging" institutions. The consortia of universities conducts other activities consistent with national efforts to increase the enrollment of traditionally underrepresented peoples in graduate education.
GO-MAP has maintained and facilitated access to the since the mid-1980's and continues to do so.
During Autumn Quarter of each year, GO-MAP collects and compiles names of participating students for distribution to graduate programs and departments. We encourage graduate programs and departments to send specific information packets to prospective students. To read more about the National Name Exchange, please visit the NNE Website, or contact the GO-MAP office.
