Learning Communities at Evergreen

Washington Center for Improving the Quality of Undergraduate Education is for the academic success of all students.

As the National Resource Center for Learning Communities, we believe that learning communities—done well—create a collaborative environment where students thrive, faculty and staff do their best work, and learning fosters the habits of mind and skills to tackle complex real-world issues.

In our work with two- and four-year institutions in Washington state and throughout the country, we serve as a conduit between our home institution, The Evergreen State College, and the wider community where the exchange of knowledge serves a common purpose: to provide a quality education for all.
