Update: Session schedules confirmed. Introductory videos, CVs and feedback form now available.

Dear Evergreen community, 

Provided below are updates on the presidential search process.

Finalists Bios Online

Immediately following the Board announcement on Friday, a one sentence bio and photo for each finalist were posted online. Please return to the final candidate page to see more expansive bios, submitted by each candidate.

Introductory Videos

Each of the 3 candidates has prepared a video, responding to the prompt “Please introduce yourself and tell us why you are interested in the position of President at the Evergreen State College.” One silver lining in this remote environment is our ability to share these videos with our community now. The efforts of each candidate on a short timeline, and the support of our Electronic Media staff at Evergreen made this possible. Closed captioning is available for each video.

Session Schedules Confirmed

Schedules for each session are now online. Students will receive an email with one Zoom link for all 3 sessions. Outlook calendar invitations, followed by Zoom links, will be sent to faculty and staff. One Zoom link for the Advisory Committee and Friends sessions on Wednesday evening will be sent via email to stakeholder mailing lists and posted online later today.

Applicant Materials Available

Students, faculty and staff can now access CV/resume documents for each final candidate. Personal information has been redacted for privacy. These files are accessible for review and feedback of candidates in relation to this search only.

Evaluation of Candidates

The candidate feedback form is now available online. Please submit one entry for each candidate following your participation in virtual sessions or search committee interviews, and review of introductory videos, bios, or application materials. Submissions are due on Tuesday, April 27 at 9:00am. Periodic reminders will be sent.
