Board Committees

Committee for Young Alumni (CYA)

Through structured, proactive engagement, the Committee for Young Alumni assists Reed students to prepare for graduation or departure from the college and supports their first post-Reed decade. CYA will continually deliver resources to strengthen our alumni network through close integration with college staff, other Alumni Board committees, the chapters, and Alumni Fundraising for Reed.

Diversity and Inclusion Committee (DIC)

The Alumni Board's Diversity and Inclusion Committee is committed to engaging and supporting Reed community members from historically underrepresented groups. By recognizing the complexities of identity, diversity, and privilege, we strive to engage fully all alumni. 

Reed Career Alliance (RCA)

RCA is an initiative for alumni to support the career development of current students, recent graduates, and mid-career graduates through mentoring and experiential-learning opportunities. Learn more about Reed Career Alliance

The Alumni Chapters Committee

Alumni Chapters focus on engaging Reedies in regional areas across the country and on other continents. This committee focuses on sharing best practices and ideas, coordinating events between chapters, identifying new opportunities for Reedie gatherings, strengthening steering committee leadership in chapters, and increasing the number of alumni attending chapter events. Current alumni chapters include the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, New York, Portland, Seattle, Southern California, Washington, D.C., and Europe.
