Multicultural Alumni Partnership


Founded in 1994, the Multicultural Alumni Partnership (MAP) is dedicated to promoting diversity at the UW and in the UW alumni community.

Under the guidance of founding members Larry Matsuda, ’67, ’73, ’81, and Vivian O. Lee, ’58, ’59, MAP has taken a leadership role in addressing issues of equality and equity through scholarships, mentoring, lectures and reaching out to the University community. MAP is open to everyone; the only qualification is a passion for diversity and social justice.

Each year on Homecoming Saturday, MAP hosts the Bridging the Gap Breakfast, benefiting the MAP Endowed Scholarship Fund. Meet scholarship recipients, and celebrate the achievements of distinguished alumni. This year, the 25th anniversary celebration, is on October 19, 2019.

For more information about diversity issues and programs at the University of Washington, please visit the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity website.
