About The Evergreen State College
Evergreen is an innovative, public, liberal arts college emphasizing integrated 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. Successful teaching at Evergreen requires broad-ranging intellectual curiosity and the ability to formulate interdisciplinary questions with faculty colleagues and students.
Faculty members team-teach in full-time interdisciplinary programs. With their teaching colleagues they collaboratively design thematically-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.
Recognizing cultural diversity as a defining characteristic of the 21st century, the college has intensified its efforts to becom...e a multicultural institution. Substantive experience in 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 our Five Foci:
? Interdisciplinary study
? Personal engagement in learning
? Linking theoretical perspectives with practice
? Collaborative/cooperative work
? Teaching across significant differences
