Evergreen Plans More In-Person in Fall 2021

While Evergreen will remain remote and hybrid for spring and summer quarters, the college anticipates safely teaching and learning more in-person in the fall 2021 quarter.

“Evergreen has done a great job of keeping students, staff and faculty safe over the past year,” said Vice President for College Relations Sandra Kaiser, who leads Evergreen’s preparations for fall 2021.

“In our planning, we are closely watching local and national conditions and taking our lead from state and local health authorities,” she said. “If those conditions improve and our campus community continues to mask up, socially distance, and get vaccinated when they are able, I’m hopeful we can operate in person this autumn.”

Evergreen faculty and staff are working hard to develop a unique catalog of programs and courses to safely deliver in-person and remote instruction in fall, while student services are planning in-person hours and remote options, too. College facilities teams are also working hard to prepare campus for in-person learning, making sure cleaning practices are in place to keep everyone safe.

More updated information on fall 2021 housing, dining and student activities, as well as other campus plans will be coming soon. Meanwhile, you can always find the latest on our COVID-19 information page.
