Office for Student Support 


The Office for Student Support is a central location for coordinating efforts with campus partners to assist students in overcoming hardships and obstacles to personal well-being and success. Student Support staff assist students with connections to campus partners, community resources, and support systems, encouraging and supporting success through individualized planning.

The Student Support office serves Reed students and the wider campus community through:

  • referrals to campus and community resources
  • providing individualized student support 
  • intaking and responding to concerns for students 
  • assisting students with institutional wayfinding

Student Support staff possess an effective understanding of campus policies, procedures, and campus life, and work closely with students, staff, faculty and families to address challenges, eliminate obstacles, promote well-being and thriving, and connect students to helpful resources. 

The Office for Student Support coordinates Reed’s student support network including the Reed Care Team, Behavioral Intervention Team, and Student Life On-Call Team.
