Description of business, organization, invention

We provide education al programs that include scholarly education and academic degrees in iberal studies. As co-founder of Kepler, I participated in the initial development phase from 1993 through 2000, helping develop the business plan and assisting with initial curriculum design and then faculty development. I took as President in 2000.

Evergreen helped prepare me for my professional life in the following way

Going to Evergreen the year it opened imprinted me with the excitement and confusion of a new college from a student perspective. This provided invaluable insights as I helped open a new college. In addition, as another Evergreen graduate, Gary Lorentzen (class of '75), and I worked on Kepler's policies, we ensured that Kepler followed many of Evergreen's ideas on student evaluation and overall learning objectives, including abandoning letter grades and developing integrated, team-taught courses. My experiences at Evergreen also made me a strong proponent for soliciting student feedback on nearly all operations at Kepler College.
