Careers in Education Panel
Are you broadly interested in a career in education (not necessarily teaching!) but unsure what your options might be? An invited panel of Reed alums will share information about their carers in a variety of education-related fields including program evaluation, school psychology, classroom teaching, and early childhood education. They will also discuss what you can be doing while at Reed to pave the path toward these various options.
