Evergreen is a non-traditional public liberal arts college emphasizing intensive interdisciplinary study and collaborative team-teaching throughout the undergraduate curriculum and in three graduate programs. Teaching is the central work of the faculty at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Recognizing cultural diversity as a defining characteristic of the 21st century, the college has intensified its efforts to become a multicultural institution. Substantive experience working across cultural differences is therefore highly desirable for all positions. Committed to equal opportunity and affirmative action, Evergreen is working to build a diverse, broadly trained faculty. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose race, national origin, sex, age, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, veteran status or physical disability will contribute to our diversity.

Successful teaching at Evergreen requires broad-ranging intellectual curiosity and the ability to formulate interdisciplinary questions with faculty colleagues and students. Faculty membership is unranked with salary determined on a non-competitive, open scale based on earned degrees and years of relevant experience.

Evergreen's fundamental academic commitments are summarized in the Five Foci:
  • Interdisciplinary study
  • Personal engagement in learning
  • Linking theoretical perspectives with practice
  • Collaborative/cooperative work
  • Teaching across significant differences
