Teaching and Learning: A Resource for Faculty

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. Of course, conducting our own research and helping our students do research is important and this page contains information about grants and centers here on campus.
