Celebrating 40 Years of Evergreen
This year, we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of Evergreen's first academic year. We take great pride in what we have all accomplished in the ensuing four decades.
Evergreen has become nationally recognized for academic rigor and commitment to sustainable practices. You can see in this issue of the magazine that Greeners are not only leaders in their fields, but in the fields that will be so instrumental as we look to our future – organic farming, sustainable building, alternative energy, e-commerce, environmental conservation, collaboration and social justice.
