Meet Evan T. Green

What brought you to PSU and how long have you been advising?
Coming to PSU provided me with an opportunity to work with under represented students, which aligns with my personal and professional passion for supporting student success. Throughout the course of my professional career I have done student advising in various forms, but all told I have been advising for nearly 8 years

Where did you attend college and what did you study?
I started my academic career at Virginia State University where I obtained a bachelor's degree in Political Science. After taking a few years off I returned to school to obtain a Masters in Urban Planning from SUNY University at Buffalo. I am currently working on a doctorate in African Studies at Howard University.

What’s your favorite thing about PSU’s School of Business?
Over the course of my short tenure with the School of Business the thing that stands out is the schools support of student creativity, individualism and encouragement for them to pursue their passion. It is often said that students should follow their heart instead of fitting into per-established boxes created by business and industry.

What’s your best advice for students to make the most of their SBA student experience?
My best advice to SBA students is to get engaged and take advantage of the many programs and opportunities provided to them by the School of Business. The school is closely connected to the businesses in Portland and as such students have an unique opportunity to not only learn within the classroom but also outside. Get connected and engaged early!!!

What should student expect in an advising appointment and how should they prepare?
I see advising as a time to ensure students are on track and that their academic concerns are heard and addressed. Students can expect me to listen and hear them and then receive feedback that is student focus and designed to enable them to achieve their academic goals. I realize that a students' academic success and progress is directly impacted by their personal life, so students can feel comfortable sharing their total self in a safe, honest, nurturing, and non rushed environment

What do you think to do when you’re not advising students?
When I am not advising students I can be found supporting my favorite soccer teams, and if there not playing, enjoying the beautiful game in its purest form. 90 minutes of soccer is therapeutic and keeps me balanced.
