|School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):|
The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington is a distinctive public liberal arts college where coordinated, team-taught, interdisciplinary programs - combining a range of topics around a central theme - replace disconnected courses. Faculty members write narrative evaluations to assess student work, rather than reducing performance and progress to a letter grade. The curriculum promotes engagement and collaboration, rather than competition. Students have the freedom, and accountability, to design their education to meet their personal and career goals, without the limits of formalized majors or rigid requirements. The curriculum is redesigned every year, and upper division students can propose individual learning contracts to further customize their learning experience.
