      ABOUT EVERGREEN

      Evergreen is a public liberal arts college emphasizing integrated interdisciplinary study and team-teaching throughout the undergraduate curriculum and in three graduate programs. Teaching at Evergreen allows faculty members to exercise broad-ranging intellectual curiosity and to work collaboratively with faculty colleagues and students formulating interdisciplinary questions and inquiry.

      Faculty members team-teach in full-time interdisciplinary programs. With their teaching colleagues they collaboratively design thematica
      lly centered programs that bring together multiple disciplines. Faculty teams also strive to address core academic experiences we believe should be included in all programs: teaching writing and quantitative reasoning; deepening students' academic, artistic and interpretative abilities and skills; promoting culturally diverse traditions of knowledge; and creating inclusive learning environments for students and faculty members.

      We recognize diversity as a defining characteristic of the 21st century. The college has intensified its efforts to become a multicultural and diverse institution. Substantive experience working across cultural differences is therefore highly desirable for all positions. Committed to equal opportunity and affirmative action, TESC 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.

      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
