Community Safety Equity and Anti-Racism Initiative

Racism in all its forms is antithetical to our mission to protect the Reed community. In support of Reed's equity and anti-racism goals, we have begun a critical examination of our training, practices, uniforms, directives, and reputation in our community. As we fill in the details of this process, we will post our commitments to change with details and due dates. Look here for more information and to tell us what you think.
Institutional silence is institutional violence.
Black Lives Matter.
Enough is enough.

CSOs are trained to provide emergency medical assistance and to call for police/fire/medical responders when necessary. Community Safety has trained staff to receive and investigate reports of sexual assault and/or refer reports to both internal and external resources. Community Safety staffs the college's switchboard and triages request for most services after hours. Community Safety staff help ensure the safest possible campus through continuing collaboration with the Reed community and beyond.
