Host a Conference
Reed welcomes conferences during the academic year as well as the summer. If you are considering hosting a conference at Reed, please contact CEP prior to bidding on or agreeing to host a conference. Due to space and resource availability, Reed has agreed to host a maximum of 2 academic-related conferences during each academic year. During the summer (second week of June through first week of August), the campus is available for multiple conferences.
The CEP department can assist you with budgeting, planning and logistics before and during your conference.
