The second program in the core sequence examines sustainability at theoretical and practical levels. We will examine how sustainability is understood from multiple perspectives, emphasizing systems thinking and complexity theory at regional, national, and global scales. Students will develop a foundation in climate science, development theory, and energy policy to help them assess current strategies of climate mitigation and adaptation. Seminars, lectures, and workshops will help students refine their critical thinking, writing, discussion, and presentation skills.

Thoughts from President George Bridges

Clams with george

Dear Students, Staff and Faculty,

Last week’s hateful murder of worshippers in a New Zealand mosque is an assault on all of us. 

Evergreen’s special relationship with New Zealand can be traced in the beautiful lines of the Fiber Arts Studio and is embedded in our hearts. As we grieve for the victims, we must not give into anger and despair. We must step forward to support our Muslim students, faculty and staff.

As communities continue to reflect the country's increasingly diverse population, what media representations challenge and support discrimination in our communities, schools, and institutions? How can we generate a framework for actions that reject inaccurate representations of human difference, value diverse forms of knowledge, and question institutional inequalities? We will pursue answers to these questions by examining identity, educational history, cultural studies and the media in order to consider strategies to support a more equitable educational system.
