Congratulations on choosing to make the University of Washington your new academic home!  

GSEE is thrilled to welcome our incoming Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) graduate students.  

It can be incredibly challenging to move to a new city/region/country to attend graduate school. We also recognize how jarring it can be to return to life as an academic after many years in the workforce, with the added layer of uncertainty and anxiety that the pandemic has brought with it. GSEE is here for you, to foster community and a sense of belonging in graduate school, as you begin your journey! 

Join us via ZOOM on August 3rd from 1:30-3pm PST for a virtual meet & greet for incoming BIPOC master’s, Ph.D., and professional students. We will be hosting a student panel, as well as breakout rooms, to exchange tips and tricks on transitioning to Seattle and the UW (past topics have included: QTPOC Community, POC Outdoors, Student Activism/Advocacy, Parenting while in Graduate School, Find a Roommate, Free Chat. Join us to see what topics emerge this year!).  

We look forward to (virtually) seeing you soon! (REGISTER HERE)
