In 1971, Evergreen welcomed its first students. The 1,000-acre campus and 3,000-foot Puget Sound beachfront became a living laboratory for creative and scientific inspiration and research. Since then, the college has earned accolades from national publications; Princeton Review, Fiske Guide, U.S. News & World Report, and Sierra Magazine, regularly rank Evergreen as a top college.
Evergreen attracts students inspired by the complexity of the world. Our model of learning prepares students for the way the world happens now, layering academic disciplines so students can focus on how they want to uniquely impact our ever-changing world. On a forested campus on the shores of Puget Sound, Evergreen offers two undergraduate and three master’s degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Environmental Studies, Master of Public Administration, and Master in Teaching.
The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment works to improve educational effectiveness through the assessment of teaching and learning, the evaluation of educational practices and services, and the ongoing reporting of demographic and evaluative data for institutional decision making and external reporting.
