The Center for Teaching and Learning

About the Center for Teaching and Learning

Located in Greywood 105, The Center for Teaching and Learning began in 2014 with support from a Mellon Foundation Planning Grant and a generous contribution by Daniel Kemp, a 1958 Reed alumnus and retired Chemistry professor at MIT.

The Center is directed by a Reed faculty member in 2-year terms with support from a program manager and a faculty advisory council.

We welcome your suggestions for new programs and feedback on current initiatives. Please contact us at
