Teaching and learning are fundamental to Evergreen’s mission as an experimental liberal arts college. For faculty members, this means that there is no requirement to "publish or perish"; instead, we imagine, design, and teach interdisciplinary programs that respond to major questions and problems we face as humans in an ever changing world. This creative work is central to what we do.
In 2016, Evergreen launched the Learning and Teaching Commons — a teaching and learning center hosted by the Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education. The Commons promotes a generative culture of interdisciplinary teaching and learning that is student-centered, equity-minded, inquiry-oriented, and committed to access and excellence. We aim to promote better classroom experiences that lead to increased student learning and retention. Please visit the Learning and Teaching Commons website to learn more about the programming and events we offer to support Evergreen faculty.
