Governance and Decision-Making at Evergreen.
Evergreen State Coll., Olympia, Washington.
This document presents a description of the process of governance and decisionmaking at Evergreen State University. The system: (1) calls for the continuous flow of information and for the effective keeping of necessary records; (2) provides for getting the work done and for making decisions where the action is; (3) allows for creative policy making, including a policy initiation process open to any member of the Evergreen community; (4) insists on the speedy adjudication of disputes with built-in guarantees of due process for the individual; (5) has built-in methods for evaluating and, if necessary, changing the system; and (6) attempts in every instance to emphasize the sense of community and to require members of the community to play multiple, reciprocal, and reinforcing roles in the community enterprise.
