The health of our communities depends on dynamic thinkers who can approach complex systems with curiosity, creativity and nuance. In order to create a more equitable and inclusive future, we will also need leaders drawn from a wide range of backgrounds. Alder will be a two year liberal arts college for students who will become these thought leaders. STUDENT SUCCESS BUILT ON RELATIONSHIPS Alder will focus on the crucial first two years of college, offering a rigorous yet supportive academic environment, where full-time faculty teach a richly inclusive and deeply diverse student body recruited from the talent we know is right here in Oregon. KEEPING IT LOCAL Recruitment will be local (Portland metro area), and focus on building relationships with high school staff and teachers to identify students who would benefit most from an Alder education. STUDENT COHORTS Students take courses with the same cohort throughout their two years, giving them the time to develop relationships with peers and professors and create a vibrant, tight-knit intellectual community. FACULTY TEAMS Students spend two years with a core group of faculty who are engaged in collaborative pedagogy. INTEGRATED CURRICULUM Based on the success of learning communities, the two-year curriculum is integrated to encourage coherent cross-subject learning. Faculty collaboratively develop syllabi and scaffold assignments to build skills across disciplines and quarters. EQUITY, DIVERSITY, INCLUSION Learning increases when students interact with classmates from different backgrounds. Society benefits when a more diverse group of students pursues liberal arts education. Alder College will prioritize admitting and retaining a diverse student body through its recruitment practices. AFTER ALDER Whether students decide their next step means attending a four-year college or university, entering the workforce, or pursuing an alternative program of study, Alder College will provide them with the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions. OUR STUDENTS, OUR CITY We know that the best way to serve both our students and our city is by cultivating thick networks that encourage exploration and ongoing dialogue. By creating teams of community members and supporters, we will begin these conversations that will continue long after the first students walk through our doors. COMMUNITY & STUDENT OUTREACH Through strong connections with local organizations and high schools, Alder will work with teachers and mentors to identify students who would benefit from Alder’s rigorous yet supportive academic environment. ARTS & CULTURE The liberal arts are thriving all over the Portland area in theaters and galleries, at concerts and at book readings. Alder will tap into this rich artistic tapestry and show students that this is only the beginning of their intellectual engagement with the world. BUSINESS & INDUSTRY Alder will create an open dialogue with local business leaders to understand their workforce needs, help our students make informed career choices, and create a network that connects students with potential employers. RETHINKING GENERAL EDUCATION Alder will act as a lab school, sharing best practices with other institutions that may want to integrate elements of our work into their programs. LOWER COSTS “How much does it cost to educate a student?” Alder will constantly ask how a new kind of school might answer that question. SCALABLE & REPLICABLE Alder is an incubator, developing practices that can be shared and modified to benefit students in a number of settings."
