Community Wellness

Division of Student Services


Reed's Community Wellness Program collaborates across departments with staff, faculty and students to offer outreach activities and promote resources aimed to enhance student wellness and foster a culture of wellbeing at Reed. Program offerings focus on topics such as stress management, mental health, physical activity, and harm reduction.


Community Wellness provides support for student wellbeing with the help of two teams of student employees: Peer Health Advocates and Night Owls. These ~20 students work compassionately and creatively to implement inclusive outreach programming and connect students with wellness resources that help Reedies find balance and stay safe during their time at Reed (and beyond)!

Hi! I'm Chase, a first year math major who grew up in rural Nebraska. Since leaving home four years ago, I have worked as an intern for a couple of nonprofits and as a political field organizer on several progressive LGBTQ campaigns across the country. My patronus is a golden retriever puppy, and I love to knit, sew, quilt, sing (poorly), read fiction, and write code. At Reed I facilitate the Transgender Peer Support Group and am on the Honor Council. I believe that as members of a community we have a responsibility to take care of each other. I would be excited to help you out if you have questions or concerns, or if you need help finding a resource. Feel free to get in touch with me any time.
