Taught by

Rigorous quantitative and qualitative research is an important component of academic learning in Scientific Inquiry. Research opportunities allow science students to work on specific projects associated with faculty members’ expertise. Students typically begin by working in an apprenticeship model with faculty or laboratory staff and gradually take on more independent projects within the context of the specific research program as they gain experience.

Meet Meghan Doughty, MPA's new faculty member!

MPA Faculty Meghan Doughty

Meghan Doughty will be a full time faculty member at The Evergreen State College beginning Fall 2018. She earned her B.A. in History and Literature from Seattle University in 2010; MSc in Human Rights from the London School of Economics in 2013 and just completed her Ph.D. in Public Administration at American University. She also served as an AmeriCorps Volunteer in Sitka, AK from 2010-2012 and as a Research Assistant at the National Institute of Justice in the tribal crime and justice portfolio from 2015-2017.

Collecting Permits

The Evergreen State College currently only has state permits that cover salvage of terrestrial vertebrates (i.e. organisms that are already dead) and collection of marine animals.

You must work under the supervision of the faculty who is listed on the collecting permit, and permits are not modifiable with respect to taxon, location, or gear.

The state permitting process takes a minimum of two months for review and costs $120, so advanced planning by your faculty is required for collecting events outside of existing permits.

Vertebrates

Does your research involve vertebrate animals?

Be sure to fill out the IACUC Animal Use Protocol Form (PDF) with your faculty.

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is a self-regulating entity that, according to U.S. federal law, must be established by institutions that use laboratory animals for research or instructional purposes to oversee and evaluate all aspects of the institution's animal care and use program.

Chemical Fact Sheets

You will need complete a Chemical Fact Sheet for each chemical that you request from the Science Support Center. 

Chemical Fact Sheets are available in hardcopy at the SSC.

Fill out each Chemical Fact Sheet with updated Safety Data Sheet information from a vendor like Sigma Aldrich or VWR.

Evergreen graduate teaches Senegalese farmers about natural resource conservation

The purpose of this course is to provide an overall view of the emergence of psychology as a field, its historical roots, its evolution within a broader sociocultural context, and philosophical currents running throughout this evolution. Attention will be paid to the interaction of theory development and the social milieu, the cultural biases within theory, and the effect of personal history on theoretical claims. This course is a core course, required for pursuit of graduate studies in psychology.
