Return to Evergreen 2020
Thank you for joining us – virtually – for Return to Evergreen 2020!
COVID-19 may have altered our plans to celebrate our alumni in person, but it has not diminished the Evergreen tradition of life-long learning and the inventive Greener spirit that inspires alumni to reimagine our ever-changing world. Though we were unable to gather in person this year, we were able to share meaningful experiences with alumni and friends of the college.
On October 17, 2020 more than 400 individuals registered to connect with Evergreen alumni from across the country and around the globe. Special thanks to the 16 alumni and faculty guest speakers who took part in this year’s powerful breakout sessions tackling some of the biggest challenges of our time through a lens of racial justice and equity.
