Keeping in Touch

All parents receive the quarterly Reed magazine and quarterly electronic newsletters (past issues are available online). You may also follow us on Twitter or on a Facebook page created by a Reed parent, Elizabeth Jerison Terry '82.

To continue to receive parent communication, please keep us up to date on your current contact information (email, phone, and/or address), or to let us know of any additional person to receive mailings. See below for ways to update your info and connect with other parents.

Update Your Information + Directory

We are pleased to announce that our online parent directory is now live. Through this directory, you will be able to update your contact information and look up other parent contact information via the Integrated Reed Information System (IRIS). The directory is available to all parents of current students. This service has been created in response to requests from parents about how to connect with other Reed parents, and we are hope that you will enjoy this resource.

To access the directory, please go to IRIS and click on "create an account" towards the bottom. You will need your Reed ID to begin; please request it by sending email to (Parents who are alumni already have accounts and can use the same IRIS login and password to access the parent directory.)

Please contact us with any questions or other inquiries at 503/777-7589 or
