In July Katherine Phelps will be flying to the US and hold a meeting with some of the deans at Evergreen State College.
Evergreen State College encourages students to be active and engaged citizens. Students work with faculty to develop a unique course of study across a diversity of academic disciplines. Narrative evaluations from faculty, with meaningful and usable feedback, replace competitive grades. The college enables students to participate collaboratively and responsibly in our diverse society. Evergreen State College is a world leader in progressive liberal higher education.
We hope to learn from this connection how better to found our own university and better serve our community. We hope this will result in an ongoing relationship with this institution.
When Dr Phelps returns she will present a talk about the Evergreen State College educational formula.
