Diversity at Reed

New Scholar Series

In an effort to support Reed’s academic program and introduce our students and colleagues to emerging scholars from underrepresented groups, the Office for Institutional Diversity supports proposals from academic departments to bring exciting new scholars to campus.

The goal of this program is to complement the host department’s curricular offerings, introduce our students to distinctive ideas and scholarship in their fields of study, and bring to Reed some of the country’s most exciting, thought-provoking emerging scholars. It is a secondary hope that this program will help Reed’s extraordinary academic program become better known among the nation’s diverse cross-section of new scholars.
