Graduate Student Equity & Excellence


Founded in 1970, 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 more than 50 years, GSEE (formerly 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. 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 University of Washington.

2023 Social Climate Survey

climate survey

The UW School of Medicine faculty Council on Research and Graduate Education (CORGE) conducted a climate survey in Autumn 2019 of the graduate student and postdoctoral training environment at the UW School of Medicine. The survey provided graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with the opportunity to inform the School of Medicine leadership about their experiences with mentorship, resources, discrimination, and harassment while at the UW School of Medicine. In 2023 a second survey was conducted – look for the new survey results to be published shortly.
