The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Division of Student Services


The Center for Life Beyond Reed collaborates with students and a far-reaching community of partners in order to help students pursue and develop creative, productive, fulfilling, and socially responsible lives at Reed and after graduation. Staff members guide students and new alumni to take ownership of their personal and career development. Our vision: through their work with The Center, students will explore their interests and values; learn about opportunities in a wide variety of fields; shine in the use of what they have learned through formal studies and experiences beyond the curriculum; and engage with and thrive in the global marketplace through meaningful, purposeful work.
