Additional Resources

We strongly encourage PMP participants to take advantage of the many programs and resources available on campus. To learn more about additional resources and opportunities to get involved in the wider Portland community, contact staff in the Office for Inclusive Community.

Multicultural Resource Center (Student Center)

Along with PMP, the MRC is a key program in the Office for Inclusive Community. Throughout the year, the MRC coordinates and sponsors a wide variety of programs and events that explore intersections of identity, privilege, and culture. Tuesday Talk discussions, which happen weekly at noon in the Student Center, are a great way to meet other Reedies who are interested in social justice and diversity.

Academic Support Services (Dorothy Johansen House)

The DoJo is a great place to study, meet with tutors and Academic Support staff for individual coaching, and attend a variety of academic support workshops. The department also helps coordinate January Academy, an extended academic support program that takes place during Winter break.

Center for Life Beyond Reed - (Prexy)

Whether you're looking for on-campus employment, you're intersted in applying for summer fellowships, or you're considering graduate school options, the fabulous staff in the Center for Life Beyond Reed can help! They can provide individual support such as resume review, career counseling, and job search advice. They also host a wide range of networking events, panel discussions, and other programs throughout the year.

Health & Counseling Center (next to 28 West)

The Health & Counseling Center provides free medical care and counseling for all enrolled students. There's even a Mind Spa, a quiet private room where you can relax and practice stress management techniques! The counseling center also facilitates a variety of support groups.

January Academy

January Academy is a cost-free, three-week residential workshop for first year students and first year transfer students who would like to strengthen their writing, quantitative, and study skills. Reed’s January Academy takes place in the middle of your first year—between the fall and spring semesters. After getting started at Reed, many students welcome a chance to refine their academic writing skills, review the mathematical tools used in many first-year courses, and develop strategies for academic success, like managing time well, building resilience, communicating with faculty, and using academic support resources strategically. We encourage Peer Mentor Program participants to consider participating in January Academy. 

SEEDS (Student Center)

As Reed's primary program for community service and engagement, SEEDS (Students for Education, Empowerment, and Direct Service), connects students to our wider community in an effort to complement Reed's academic program, inform students’ personal and career development, and to create and sustain a positive impact within the communities served. You can sign up for one-time volunteer opportunities, weekly commitments, and learn about off-campus Federal Workstudy positions. 

Student Activities Office (Student Center)

Interested in getting involved in student organizations, leadership programs, or student governance? Student Activities staff can answer questions about the numerous ways to get involved on campus outside of the classroom. They also manage the Gray Fund, which plans really fun, FREE activities on and off campus.
