Diversity at Evergreen

During the 2008-09 academic year, the Diversity and Equity Standing Committee developed a data collection framework to assess diversity at Evergreen over time. The resulting Diversity Indicators include: recruitment and retention, student learning and campus climate, degrees awarded, and faculty and staff demographics. For the latest findings see Evergreen Diversity Indicators: AY 2014-15 Update (PDF).

Evergreen New Student Survey 2014

The New Student Survey (NSS) is administered every other year to all fall quarter first-time first-year students, new transfer students, and newly returning Greeners. The purpose of the survey is to gather information on incoming students’ needs, goals, intended fields of study, confidence, academic preparedness, retention and attrition, characteristics, and motivations to attend Evergreen.

Alumni Survey 2014

Every two years, the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment surveys undergraduate degree recipients one year after graduation. The survey collects data on alumni employment, graduate/professional school, and volunteer work outcomes. Alumni also provide feedback on their learning and experiences at Evergreen and offer recommendations for how Evergreen can better serve its students. Results are available in the Alumni Survey 2014 Final Report.

End-of-Program Review (EPR) 2013-14

The End-of-program Review (EPR) assessment was created to help the college recognize and articulate curricular offerings.
