Subject: Spring Reminder and Invitation

Hello, All--

Graduation is only a couple weeks away! I hope you had a great quarter and year.

This is a reminder that for faculty or staff sponsoring contracts, or continuing faculty teaching in full-time programs, formal evaluations for Spring Quarter are due to your Program Secretary by Friday, June 25, 2004. You can't hand them in too soon. All Visiting faculty--whose contracts will be ending--and Adjunct faculty teaching Evening and
Weekend Studies courses and programs are expected to submit evaluations of their students to your Program Secretary by Friday, June 11, 2004.

Timely submission means not only one less obstacle between you and Summer, but also no jeopardy or complications for our students, e.g., (1) loss of financial aid; (2) subsequent disenrollment due to nonpayment of tuition and fees; (3) loss of employment; (4) inability to transfer or be considered for graduate or professional school admission. On behalf of our students, thanks to those of you who submit your evals on time.

Also keep in mind that for financial aid purposes, an Incomplete is functionally the same as No Credit.

Tony Pliska - 01:12pm Apr 27, 2004

Hi, my name is Tony Pliska. I was hoping to give my presentation, on how a culture evolves in reaction to a collection of simple rules and how the citizens evolution is a response to this reaction, on May 6th. I'll be leaving May 17th to go to the East Coast and back for 2 weeks, I've never seen any states east of washington, and I think this will be an excellent oppurtunity to see some of my ideas in person. But because i'll be gone for the last part of the quarter is why i want an early presentation. So yeah. Thank you.

Subject: [tesccrier] Student Union at Evergreen

Greetings, fellow Greener students and faculty:

You may have seen or heard something about a movement to organize the student body at The Evergreen State College.  Well, myself and a number
of other students have been meeting regularly for nearly a month now. We've discussed the unique challenges that creating a student union at
an atypical school like Evergreen presents.  We've discussed potential models for government, from consensus, to e-government, to a
semi-traditional representative system (such as the University of Manchester's Student Union, allegedly the most active and successful
student government in the U.K.:  We've discussed what to focus on in the coming months to encourage as much
participation as we can possibly garner.   We haven't settled on anything permanent, but we've done a lot of talking.

A bit too much talking, in fact.  So we are beginning to take action.  A campus-wide outreach campaign is just getting underway.  An interim
organization has been formed to provide information to students and organize the movement.  We are beginning to work on specific short-term
and long-term goals for forming a student union on campus.  All of this, however, is doomed to fail–like so many attempts that have come
before–if the student body does not support the cause.

Many similar attempts at organizing have failed in the past, and we are determined not to become another bullet on that list. So please get involved in whatever way you can.  I'm not asking for much, just sign a petition here, send an e-mail there.  If you can come help us hammer out a constitution or put up flyers, that's awesome, but if you're busy (like so many of us are), that's completely understandable.  Mostly, I would just like for you all to know what's going on and keep us in the back of your mind.  If you can, take a few minutes to e-mail us comments and suggestions, words of encouragement,
concerns, issues you would like to see addressed–anything you think will help.  It'd be nice to know what everyone is thinking.  We are doing this for you–the students–after all...

We want you to have a say in how the thousands of dollars you're pouring into this institution each year are spent.  We want you to be able to
have a real input in the decisions that are made here on campus that directly affect your life and your education.  We want you to have a
place to go and have your voice heard, echoed, and magnified by the unified student body of Evergreen, so it can be heard not only by the
administration, but potentially the world.  As opinionated as the typical Greener is, we know you all have something you're dying to say.

If you'd like to learn more about what we're doing and participate in discussions around the issue of student union, please sign up for the
Student Union Workforce list-serv by clicking this link and entering your e-mail address:  Once on the list, you may send mail to all the other subscribers at this address:  Or you can simply respond to this

e-mail address if you'd like to ask me any questions or discuss whatever

is on your mind.  I would be delighted to open a dialogue with you.

Thanks for your time,

Justin Bacon

P.S. - I think this article is inspiring:

How to stay informed


All you need to do to stay informed is to visit our program web page once a week at least, it is at:

from there you can find our email addresses, visit our web crossing site and read about what everybody else is doing, find out about our sunday classes every other week, look at the college weekly calendar to join lectures or workshops, join our program list and report to all if you like.

Starting week 7, students are invited to join the presentations from students who are finishing the program this winter, or to hear advanced reports from students who are staying.

And you know, we are in the Cedar Room Longhouse Learning Center every Tuesday and Thursday from 1 pm on for our community time. We have been watching films and engaged in great seminars, on sundays we have had very talented visitors and workshops.

Thank you for writing.

Longhouse LC 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

"Poets for Peace" a campus wide event on Feb 12 in the Library and CAB. 
ll-day open mike poetry session. The idea is to encourage and feature students and faculty to read from their own works or from the works of established poets who have established themselves for peace (ie. Nikki Giovanni, Alice Walker, Joy Harjo and Leslie Marmon Silko and M. Scott Momaday be added to the list of Walt Whitman, Emily Dickenson and Langston Hughes). Because this is a Thursday, I'd like to call now for commitments to the 12-1pm slot, for 2 faculty and two students. This will be the best open time.  Open mic at 10-am and go until 3 or 4 Keep in mind that two broad themes lead this--poetry and peace. They are coupled. This isn't an open mic/mike free-for all. It's about poetry and art and resistance. Music? Music? Let's keep it lyrical.  The question now is this. Who can and will commit to participating? When? Please respond to Simona Sharoni and/or Liza Rognas, By Tuesday, Feb. 3rd--midnight.  Or, show up and be ready to step to the mic!

Quotes from Paulo

"One subverts democracy (even though one does this in the name of democracy) by making it irrational; by making it rigid in order "to defend it against totalitarian rigidity"; by making it hateful, when it can only develop in a context of love and respect for persons; by closing it, when it only lives in openness; by nourishing it with fear when it must be couragious; by making it an instrument of the powerful in the oppression of the weak; by militarizing it against the people; by alienating a nation in the name of democracy.

One defends democracy by leading it to the state Mannheim calls "militant democracy"- a democracy which does not fear the people, which suppress privilege, which can plan without becoming rigid, which defends itself without hate, which is nourished by a critical spirit rather than irrationality."

p.58; Paulo Freire, Education For Critical Conciousness, 1973.

Project opportunity for Recognition co-learners

Thanks to everybody who responded to my e-mail below! 

It's kind of short notice, but if you or your students are interested and able to take part in a first Bottle House Workday this Sunday, November 23, please reply back to me.

I envision leaving from the Circle at 9AM on Sunday morning, driving to Castle Rock (about 1 1/4 hours south on I-5), then laying bottles, having lunch, laying more bottles, and leaving around 4PM.  The structure is roofed and enclosed with plastic, so the work will be out of the weather.

Let me know if you need a ride, or if you can drive and how many passengers you can take.  If necessary, I have tentatively reserved a van, though I haven't quite worked out how to pay for it yet!

Staff and Faculty,

Gail Tremblay and I have both worked with an older student, Ann Manthei, over the past several years.  She has done several contracts with me researching, designing and constructing a glass bottle house in Castle Rock, WA.  She has worked with teams of students from several programs, who have helped with the foundations, framing and bottle-laying for the building.  She's also made presentations to various schools, service groups and in several Evergreen programs about her travels to visit historic bottle structures in the West and Southwest, and about her own project in Castle Rock.

Recently, Ann was informed that her battle with cancer is a losing one and that she has roughly six months to live.  She asked me to help her realize her goal of hearing a concert in the completed glass bottle structure before she dies.  She estimates that 2-3 more workdays with a team (say 6-10 people) laying bottles would complete the remaining work.

I plan to organize several Saturday or Sunday workdays over the next couple of months to help Ann complete her work and hear her concert.  I'll  be sending out announcements accordingly.  If you'd like to take part that would be great!  If you have students who would be interested that's great, too.  If you want to make a workday an activity for your program that would be exceptionally great!  Please direct your inquiries to me.

In exchange for your efforts, you'll learn how to lay up a mortared wall of bottles,  you'll get to see the magical effect of light this type of construction affords, and you'll be sampling the best kind of Evergreen's collaborative learning.  (Martin Kane!  This is a Photo Op for you!). You'll have fun, and who knows, maybe you'll get inspired to build your own bottle wall addition.

Please consider taking part, or having your students take part in this project!
Thank you.

Hello all - I know that Reservation based students miss classes periodically for many different reasons.  I would like to offer an opportunity to those students to do work to make up for the classes they miss.   Many students in the Recognition program work and have difficulty attending class regularly so I am offering classes on some Sundays this quarter and probably the rest of the year.   Reservation based students are welcome to join Recognition students and the presenters I will be inviting.  Future workshop content will depend on the needs and interests of students who wish to participate.  For example, some Recognition students need Washington State or Northwest History credits to meet MIT prerequisites and they can be met this way.  The first workshops scheduled are:

        10-19 - Gary Peterson
        The Indian Way
        The language of oppression
        A river of culture
        NW history
        Video - "In the White Man's Image" (time permitting)

        11-2 - Terry Cross
        Cultural competence
        Maslow's Hierarchy of need

        11-22- Sasha Harmon, author,"Indians in the Making" has been invited but won't be able to participate until winter quarter.  I am working on a story telling workshop   for this date.

The workshops will be from 10am to 3pm on Sundays.  I don't think any of these dates will conflict with RB weekends.  I hope this offer will be received in the good spirit in which it is intended.

Carol J. Adams, author of "The Sexual Politics of Meat" and "Neither Man

Nor Beast" will be speaking at Evergreen on Tuesday, October 21st.  Her

presentation explores the connections between violence against women,
people of color, and animals using images of gender, race, and animals
from popular culture.  She explains how popular culture represents women
and animals as objects, “as pieces of meat."  Her show also demonstrates
how this objectification impacts our cultural and personal consciousness
about women and animals.  It is not to be missed.

This dynamic presentation will be held on the second floor Library Lobby
from 7-9:30pm on Tuesday, October 21st.

Please spread the word!

For more information, please contact The Evergreen Animal Rights Network
at 867-6555.

Subject:        Race and Public Policy

<<RRILC Syllabus.doc>> <<ROPE Radio-ILC.doc>>
Dear Gary:

Yvonne is my faculty sponsor for a learning contract I'm doing this fall called Race and Other Pink Elephants (ROPE Radio). In short, I'm studying the historical and lasting role race plays in influencing public policy. I hope to develop a humanities-based radio program that focuses on this issue after I complete my contract.  (I've attached my syllabus and learning contract, in case you'd like further detail on my academic goals).

Yvonne asked me to contact you about possibly carpooling with the group of students that are going with you to the WSAME conference on 12/3.  I would like to carpool with you all if possible.  I also would like to know if you are aware of any scholarships for this conference.  Thank you in advance, for any assistance you can provide me.

Subject: Upcoming benefit for TCTV

ATTENTION South Sound Community and Environmentalists!

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will speak on “Our Environmental Destiny” on October 27, 2003 - 7:30 PM, at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts, 512 Washington Street SE, Olympia. The event is a benefit for Thurston Community Television (TCTV). We plan to make it the first of an annual speaker’s forum
in Olympia.

In his speech, Mr. Kennedy will discuss the important role our natural surroundings play in our work, our health and our identity as Americans. Using examples from art, history, law and literature, he explores our
responsibility to protect the environment for future generations. Prior to the address, the group Planet Percussion will perform. Mr. Kennedy will be introduced by Washington Secretary of State, Sam Reed.

Reserved ticket prices are $19, $25, and $35. A limited number of premium seats are available at $125 and include a catered reception with Mr. Kennedy at the Washington Center immediately following his address. Internationally known pianist Scott Cossu will provide music for the reception. Tickets may be purchased by phone at 360-753-8586.

TCTV is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Much of what we do isn’t possible without support from our community. We hope you will join us for what we know will be an exciting and enlightening evening. For questions about this event, please contact Deborah Vinsel, TCTV Executive Director, at

Hi Raul
I'm an Evergreen alumnus here for a day to meet people face to face if possible, and find students who would like to come to Guatemala and work with a rural non-profit in an indigenous community. Your name was suggested as a possible contact.
I will try to find your office and leave a flyer -
if you get this mail and there is a good time to come by and meet you, I'd appreciate a response to this mail otherwise, check out the website  and let me know if you have any good ideas.
thanks much

I am going to work on a project that I started this summer, basically I went to Cancun, México in sep. with the Animal Welfare Institution protesting the World Trade Organization and will be writing a few articles relating to my experiences, also I am currently editing two different videos on the marches and riots, showing the un-edited version of the video that I took on the local access television station, volunteering at my local highschool to do presentations on it, holding a benefit to make the community aware of what is going on and what they can do, working with EPIC, and a list full of other things. I will be occasionally signing up to do oral lectures for anyone who is interested in the WTO and also to show videos. If you have any further questions or suggestions please let me know.
Sincerely, Nate Ross
