Students doing Public Service at the Kirsop Farm

Evergreen has a long history of commitment to public service based on the principle that colleges should provide students, faculty and staff an opportunity to give back to their communities. Evergreen students and faculty participate in the diverse educational programs and research activities offered by these service centers.

The collective mission statement for the service centers addresses the desire to build relationships and form networks that promote and enhance Evergreen's integrative and collaborative approach to learning, in a variety of settings among a variety of groups. The Public Service Centers serve as a conduit between Evergreen and a wider community, enriching and broadening the exchange of knowledge in an ever-widening circle.
