If your plans change, please cancel. Institutes frequently have waitlists. If you aren’t able to attend, please let us know so we can give your spot to someone on the waitlist.

Sponsored Institutes

In collaboration with campus partners, The Learning and Teaching Commons is offering several Sponsored Institutes. These institutes are selected for their broad appeal to the campus community.

Designing Learning Experiences that Matter (3 days)

Taking Action on Equity II (1 day)

Convened by Therese Saliba & Elizabeth Williamson
This one-day institute invites faculty, staff, and administrators across the college to continue the work of developing area Equity Action Plans, centered on Evergreen’s equity goals of fully supporting students, cultivating and sustaining a campus culture that fosters a strong sense of belonging, engaging in ongoing professional DEI development, and recruiting and retaining diverse, historically underrepresented students, staff and faculty.

Expanding Faculty Competence in Navigation of Student Mental Wellness (1 day)

Convened by Matt Goldenberg & Leticia Nieto
In this virtual, experiential workshop, faculty will be invited to explore challenges and lessons learned as you navigate student mental wellness on campus. Using didactics, creative action, group engagement, and individual reflection, you will gain a framework to deepen empathy for the context that Evergreen students currently face which impacts mental wellbeing. We will look towards sustainable efforts of wellness and cohesion and ways to enhance your confidence in discussing mental health issues with the greater Evergreen community. 

This institute is made possible through a generous donation to the Learning and Teaching Commons. We are very grateful to have received a donation in support of Evergreen’s faculty!
