The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Division of Student Services


Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in
creating out of void, but out of chaos.
—Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

10—11:15 a.m. Psy 105 Innovations in Public Service
Social Enterprise and Non-Profit Development: 
From Plato to Locke to Sen, the liberal arts have always been concerned with the fundamental problems facing humanity. After we leave the confines of Reed, this intellectual tradition becomes the foundation for creating, innovating, and implementing initiatives for social change. This panel focuses on the connection between theory and application: how do Reedies translate their education into challenging careers in public service? Special emphasis will be put on how alumni have designed initiatives and programs to solve significant social problems, and the process by which Reedies can develop and manage their own non-profit organizations. Both technical and inspirational, this panel highlights the pathways by which Reedies are innovating social change, here and abroad.
