Pedagogy and curriculum integrating community-based learning
The Evergreen State College s history demonstrates a substantial commitment to community service in academic programs and in the personal lives of faculty and staff. The five foci of Evergreen s pedagogy and curriculum (interdisciplinary study, personal engagement in learning, linking theory and practice, collaborative work, and teaching across significant differences) are integral to community-based learning.
In May 1998, a Task Force studying community-based learning at Evergreen found that:
- In a typical year over 800 students earn credit through internships.
- 46% of faculty respondents said they include community-based projects in their curriculum.
- 68% of faculty respondents include other forms of community service, such as service projects or volunteer work, in their programs.
- 90% of faculty respondents and 95% of staff respondents are involved in community service work.
One example of community-based learning at Evergreen is at our Tacoma campus, whose motto is: “”Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve.”” Every senior at the Evergreen-Tacoma campus is required to complete a public service project as a condition of graduation.
