About

From March 18 to 31, we are asking YOU to help us fund financial aid. The goal: 1,000 donors = $100,000 match to financial aid from trustee Win McCormack. 

Reed meets 100% of demonstrated need for each student for all four years. This year, Reed increased its financial aid budget by 25%—an enormous leap—to address a greater increase in students' financial need resulting from the adverse economic impacts of the pandemic. 

Gifts of $5, $10, or $20 are an investment in Reedies and their contributions to the world.

PS Want to help even more? Spread the word about the campaign and track every gift you inspire.

HELLO, MIA!

Mia Boyer-Edwards ‘23 (she/her) is a junior majoring in sociology. She is a co-captain of Mock Trial, a Student Teaching Consultant for Hum 110, and a tutor. She says her friends are her safe space at Reed.   

Reed is hard. I have been pushed here, beyond where I have been comfortable. It is incredibly academically rigorous and sometimes feels like I'm sprinting a marathon. But there are moments where I can tell that I've really got a good grasp on a concept, or I've solved a problem, or I'm incredibly proud of something that I've written, where I can see all of the knowledge that the hard work has helped me build.   

My Reed experience wouldn’t be possible without ______(?)________! The intense care and labor put in by faculty and staff to make Reed the best it can possibly be for the students. Every time I see a syllabus for a new semester, I can see the care with which the works were selected and the thoughtfulness with which the assignments were ordered.    

Financial aid is important because it supports people from many different financial backgrounds in their pursuit of education and employment When an institution can support students through financial aid, it not only gains a valuable member of the community but opens a door for that person to explore education, new cities, new networks, new friends, and new possibilities. Financial aid addresses systemic inequalities that impact people's ability to attend higher education, and in doing so, promotes a greater breadth of lived experiences in postsecondary education. Financial aid opens Reed to students, and when it does, Reed is made better for it. 

Reed alumni are incredible. Seriously. I have reached out to so many to ask for help on projects, whether my own or for a club, and they're always so helpful and kind. I have never had a support network that I felt could really take me amazing places like the Reed alumni network does.

SOON-TO-BE-GRAD LIBS 

Leila Sinclair ’22 (she/her) 

Comparative Literature   

Reed is like a tangled ball of yarn There's so much going on, it's overwhelming. But if you breathe and follow the string, one inch at a time, you make it through, and you end up with the material to make something that's beautiful and truly yours.   

The best part about being at Reed is ______(?)________. meeting people who care about the things you care about, and care enough about you to listen.   

Reed is made remarkable by the contributions of every Reedie! Reed is made better because I helped write and pass the policy that created the Restorative Justice Coalition as an official part of campus judicial processes.   

Financial aid is important because it makes attending Reed possible and helps students meet their basic needs.   

Financial aid is necessary. Financial aid makes accessible education possible

[More about the Restorative Justice Coalition: “We really try to find ways to promote and support community in different ways. We have community building circles, harm circles, and these things that we call ‘connection and support circles’. We are there for faculty, staff, and students, and we really try to find ways to create spaces for conversation to address peoples’ needs.” —Tina Bardot ‘23 (she/her/they), Environmental Studies-Economics]
