Travel Study: 2016

Travel Study is a project of Alumni Relations that provides Reed alumni with the opportunity to learn while traveling to various locales. Trips are often led by a Reed professor or staff member who has expert knowledge of the place being visited and/or the topic being discussed.

If you choose to purchase travel insurance for any Reed trips, consider choosing MH Ross Travel Insurance Services at the link provided. Revenue generated by coverage purchased through the Alumni Insurance Program supports alumni access to Reed’s JSTOR system and also helps maintain the Reed Switchboard. You can learn more about the policies here or by calling 800-635-7801. However, you are free to use any insurance company you like for travel insurance, if you wish to purchase it.

For any questions about these trips or to sign up, email alumni@reed.edu.
