Evergreen’s academic structure is unique and especially designed to model the college values in collaboration and shared governance. We are all members of the faculty and we rotate into the deans positions from teaching for fixed three or four year terms. Instead of representing academic divisions, we are each responsible for specific administrative functions within our academics as a whole and we work as a team to support faculty and students.
As deans, we evaluate all 250 faculty members. We review student contracts and work with other offices in many ways to support teaching and learning at the college. We work closely with the Provost and Academic Vice President to set academic policy and work through daily concerns.
It is a privilege to serve as deans of Evergreen—a service we have all taken on because we believe so firmly in the values of the college. We welcome your questions and comments—in person or by email.
