International at Reed

Language Scholar Program

The Language Scholar Program was founded at Reed College in 1985 with the first scholar joining the College in the fall of 1986 from the Freie University of Berlin in collaboration with the Institute of International Education (IIE). Since that time the program has grown to include 8 scholars who come to the College through exchange relationships with partner universities around the world or program affiliations with organizations including the Council on International Educational Exchange, the Center for University Programs Abroad and IIE.

Language Scholars come to Reed for one academic year to assist the College's efforts to enhance language learning as well as to represent the cultures in which those languages are spoken. They thus work closely with the faculty in the modern languages taught at Reed and live in the six language/theme halls at the College. Language Scholars at Reed represent the German, French, Russian, Chinese and Spanish languages and since 2009 the Arabic language.
