About the Washington Center
We are a public service center of The Evergreen State College.
Our work is focused on:
Washington Center is organized as a consortium, working in collaboration with institutions across the country. Our member institutions within Washington state include thirty-three community and technical colleges, six public four-year institutions, one tribal college, and eleven independent colleges.
We work within Washington state and throughout the country with faculty members, staff, and administrators to share good practices and carry out collaborative projects aimed at improving undergraduate teaching and student learning. Through workshops, institutes, campus visits, publications, and our website, the Washington Center promotes projects aimed at improving student achievement.
The Washington State Legislature established the Washington Center as a public service center, in a special 1987-89 biennium budget allocation, with a mandate to work with two- and four-year higher education institutions and other educators throughout the state to improve the quality of undergraduate education.
