Report on the Visit to the Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington. May, 1974. Unified Studies Report No. I:1.
Greeley, Warren; And Others
The Evergreen State College seems to be working well as a nontraditional college committed to educational change and innovation. It provides a model for interdisciplinary education, developing basic cognitive skills and drawing all disciplines in probing specific problems. The necessary ingredients for a stimulating learning environment based on this model seems to be feasibility, openness, and a genuine feeling of community among all learners. Evergreen begins with no grades, no ranks, no departments, nothing to create a division and competitive learning environment. Beyond this, the school works actively toward building a sense of trust, community, and cooperative exploration. Small Coordination Studies Programs allow personal contact and a sense of group identity. Team building activities further develop this group commitment and even the facilities themselves are arranged to provide contact and interchange. (Author/KE)
