Evergreen at Grays Harbor
The Evergreen State College offers a unique educational experience at Grays Harbor College (GHC). Each quarter, we offer a program conveniently scheduled on weekends and taught by Evergreen faculty on the Grays Harbor campus.
The focus of the Grays Harbor program changes from year to year but centers on interdisciplinary management, leadership, and the health of individuals, communities, and organizations. Students benefit from meaningful instruction as they develop critical thinking and analytical skills, refine problem-solving techniques, and become effective team players. You can complete your bachelor's degree without leaving the Harbor!
The program was begun in 2000 with the stated objective of giving students who have graduated from GHC the opportunity to obtain a bachelor in liberal arts without having to leave that campus, but the program is open to all Evergreen students and often includes a broad mix of students from beyond the Grays Harbor area.
2012-13: Minds at Work
In the 20112-13 academic year, Kathy Kelly and Gillies Malnarich are teaching a program titled Minds at Work: Puzzles, Polarities, and Possibilities which invites us to sharpen our individual and collective capacity to 'do thinking' with the aim of developing the habits of mind of analytic and integrative thinkers. The full description is available in the online catalog.
This program meets from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. on various Saturdays and Sundays each quarter. The first class of each quarter is held on the Olympia campus. All other classes meet in Aberdeen.
