A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :
South Seattle Community College actively participates in the University of Washington's Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Project. Administrators and faculty from South Seattle assist with panels and workshops that focus on students from underrepresented groups wanting to learn more about going into a teaching or education administrator role. From the programs website:
"As a unit of the UW Graduate School, the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) is committed to serving the needs of students of color and students from other underrepresented groups, while simultaneously fostering an educational and social environment in which all students can learn and develop through experiences rich in cultural, ethnic, and racial diversity. GO-MAP’s three main areas of focus are:
Outreach, recruitment, and retention
Enhancing scholarship and research
Building community, on and off campus
The Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program, or GO-MAP, has been an integral part of the University of Washington for over 40 years, taking very seriously our efforts to establish and maintain campus, local, national, and international networks for students in our program. Members of our staff work closely with faculty, staff, and graduate students currently on campus to enhance academic and funding opportunities and to encourage scholarship and research that explores and supports cultural diversity."
