Professional Development

Reed College is committed to provide an environment of learning not only for our students but for our employees as well. We are dedicated to providing various learning opportunities intended to help you enhance your professional knowledge, competence skills, and effectiveness, all while bringing greater value to your job and work team.

Reed's goals are to:

  • encourage collaboration across college departments
  • support employees in their professional development goals
  • foster an environment of continued learning
  • empower staff members to explore the intrinsic value of intellectual pursuit, scholarly practice, critical thought, and creativity

We encourage every employee to have an on-going discussion with their supervisor about professional development.
