EverCoug Spotlight:
Aaron Feaver, Director, JCDREAM

They’re called “rare earths,” not because they are hard to find, but because they are difficult and dangerous to mine. We rely on these elements to manufacture batteries for our phones, computers, and electric vehicles. Aaron Feaver, Director of the Joint Center for Development & Research in Earth Abundant Materials (JCDREAM) is working to change this by researching earth abundant alternatives to rare earths, developing more efficient recycling methods, and finding ways to use less of these materials to begin with. Get to know more about Dr. Feaver, rare earths, JCDREAM, and the ways they’re changing the future of clean energy—check out some of their coverage in WSU MagazineGeekWire, and Science Daily.

Building Updates

Welcome to Jacob Jerde, our new maintenance mechanic! Jacob comes to WSU Everett from the City of Everett and will officially become part of the EverCoug family on September 12. And a big congratulations to Sean McNaughton as he moves into a new role as our Building and Grounds Supervisor. Thanks to everyone who takes care of our building, the campus grounds, and the people who use our facilities. Across the way from our South entrance, you may have noticed a little change in the landscape. EvCC’s Cascade Learning Resource Center began construction in September 2021 and is on track for a grand opening in April.
