Program Covenant – Sex, Gender, and Evolution

Both students and faculty will
  •    treat all members of this learning community with respect.
  •    demonstrate commitment to and provide a supportive atmosphere for all members of this learning community.
  •    abide by the principles of the Social Contract and the Sexual Harassment Policy.
  •    respect the privacy of all other participants by not discussing outside of class any personal information that may be disclosed during any program activities or discussions.
  •    attempt to resolve conflict and grievances fully and promptly first on an individual basis, then by seeking assistance from others if issues remain unresolved.
  •    dedicate approximately 20 hours a week, in and out of the classroom, to advancing the goals of this learning community.
  •    maintain a sense of balance concerning the workloads and pace of teaching and learning and the other goals and demands of our lives.

Faculty will

  •    facilitate the learning of students by collecting and presenting information, designing and conducting activities, and providing prompt feedback for students.
  •    be available for students during office hours and by appointment.
  •    arrange evaluation conferences with each student and write timely evaluations of each student.
  •    be prepared for and attend weekly planning meetings focused on the facilitation of student learning.
  •    attend all program activities required of the entire group of students when not ill or absent for professional reasons.
  •    arrange a faculty evaluation conference during or shortly after evaluation week and prepare drafts of a self-evaluation for that conference.

Students will

  •    attend all program activities, arrive on time, and be fully prepared to participate.
  •    notify faculty in advance if they are unable to attend due to illness or emergency.
  •    participate fully in the learning community to advance their own learning as well as contribute to the learning of others.
  •    take initiative in seeking help from faculty when difficulty exists with the content, structure,  or pace of the program.
  •    collaborate effectively with other students to produce group work that represents the talents and efforts of all members of the group.
  •    display academic integrity by submitting original work and giving appropriate credit for the contributions of others. (Please meet with the program faculty and consult the college's definition of plagiarism if you have any doubts about what is meant by academic integrity.)
  •    demonstrate professionalism by submitting typed, appropriately formatted work that has been thoroughly proofread.
  •    maintain and submit a program portfolio that will contribute towards evaluating student performance.
  •    attend an evaluation conference during evaluation week and prepare drafts of a self-evaluation for that conference.

Credit and evaluation policy

  •    The evaluation process is a central feature of education at Evergreen that allows students to learn by reflecting on their experiences. Students are required to submit timely self-evaluations and faculty evaluations in order to receive credit for the program.
  •    Students receive credit for fulfilling minimum requirements. Plagiarism or academic dishonesty may lead to total loss of credit. Credit may be reduced because of unsatisfactory performance or unsatisfactory attendance (missing more than one class is unsatisfactory). Reduction of credit will require consensus of the full faculty team.
  •    Credit is not the same as positive evaluation. It is possible to receive credit yet receive a poor evaluation.
  •    Incompletes will be discouraged and require consensus of the full faculty team.
  •    If any student has a health condition or disability that may require accommodations in or to participate effectively in class, he or she will inform the faculty and contact Access Services (Library 1407-D, 867-6348).  All information about health conditions and disabilities will be regarded as confidential.
