Faculty: Creating New Knowledge
Reed College faculty are independent thinkers and well-known scholars dedicated, first, to teaching.
One hundred percent of Reed’s courses are taught by professors, rather than by teaching assistants, and the student-to-faculty ratio is 9:1. Most of our faculty live in one of the neighborhoods surrounding the college—don’t be surprised to see your professors at the coffee shop on Woodstock Avenue or the Farmers Market on Wednesdays—which is a great benefit to our campus environment.
Reed’s teaching philosophy, characterized by close interaction between students and faculty, creates a unique intellectual environment of rigorous academic collaboration.
