Meet Our Faculty

Reed College professors are not only experts in their fields, they are the stewards of our academic community. Their passion for teaching and mentoring students creates an environment where you can ask difficult questions, fail without fear, and find unconventional solutions.

Our faculty—not teaching assistants—teach all your classes, and the student-to-faculty ratio is 9:1. That means our professors get to know you by name as they nurture your passions and push you to excel beyond your former boundaries. Moreover, you will collaborate with them on research and creative projects, embarking on a journey of new discoveries and contributing to original scholarship.

Don’t just take our word for it. Experience why students voted Reed #1 for Best Classroom Experience and #1 for Professors Get High Marks in the Princeton Review’s 2023 survey.
