Faculty & Staff
Faculty Dedicated to Student Learning
The MPA faculty are experienced teachers. Many have significant experience working in the public sector prior to coming to Evergreen. Some teach and do research full-time; some are still practitioners in local public agencies and nonprofits; some are involved in community service, training, research, and/or consulting.
Faculty are drawn to Evergreen because they love teaching. They are interested in the process of learning and they want to work with students in an environment that rewards that interest. They see themselves as members of a learning community, and they value what they learn from our students as much as what the students come to learn from them. Students should expect a lot of interaction with program faculty--you will come to know them well, and they will know you and your work. As a result, our faculty often mentor our graduates long after they complete the program.
