Equity and Diversity at Evergreen

Evergreen's Committment

At The Evergreen State College we aim to cultivate a campus environment that is equitable, inclusive, and respectful to engage all students, faculty, and staff in courageous and compassionate learning.

Evergreen is proud to have a diverse community that includes students, faculty, and staff from a variety of racial, ethnic, and cultural groups; military veterans; LGBTQ+ communities; first-generation, low-income, and non-traditional age students; and students with disabilities.

Evergreen’s Mission Statement emphasizes our “local and global commitment to social justice, diversity, environmental stewardship and service in the public interest." We engage our community in pursuing our mission through our immersive and interdisciplinary learning experiences.
