I Teach At Evans Because...
Our world-renowned faculty are the greatest asset of the Evans School. They have raised generations of students to become effective and inspiring public service leaders. Hear why they teach at Evans, and why a remodeled Parrington Hall matters to them.
Our Next Generation
We are grounded in data and inspired by a passion to improve people’s lives and the world around us. We make the public and social sectors vastly more accountable, efficient, and productive. Learn more about why this remodel is imperative for our next generation of leaders.
A 1902 Fly-Wheel
This important project will create new classrooms, improve existing learning spaces, and fix a multitude of outdated infrastructure – including finally retiring the original 1902 fly wheel still used to circulate building air – so that this heritage building can serve students and faculty for another 100 years.
Innovative Spaces ➡ Innovative Solutions
This remodel will transform our building to reflect the values our students and graduates embody: transparency, collaboration, sustainability, and innovation.
With construction beginning early 2019, students and faculty will return to a renewed and modernized Parrington Hall in early 2020, ready to inspire innovative solutions to the world’s most challenging public problems.
What’s in $20 Million?
The generosity of Evans alumni, faculty, and staff; the support of community members who believe in the value of public service; and the Washington State Legislature’s $10M allocation in their January 2018 Capital Budget – together, we are ALL making this project possible.
