The Center for Life Beyond Reed

The quest you begin at Reed doesn't end at graduation. The Center for Life Beyond Reed collaborates with a far-reaching community of partners in order to help you support your passions and, in a spirit of inquiry, lead productive lives with purpose.

We provide specialized personal and career development support to connect you to service, internships, fellowships, and other meaningful experiential learning opportunities during your time at Reed. We can also help you make professional contacts in a wide range of careers.

Our vision is that through your work with the Center, you will

  • better understand your interests and values;
  • learn about opportunities in a wide variety of fields;
  • become a leader in your chosen field;
  • engage with and thrive in the global marketplace through meaningful, purposeful work.
