Ann Delehanty, Associate Professor, French & Humanities

Delehanty is the chair of the community service committee at her children’s K-8 school, Winterhaven, and organizes service events once a month for the entire school. Delehanty also delivers food through the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to families in need. Delehanty volunteers in the Sellwood area and says, “The experience completely reconfigures your understanding of the incredible poverty that exists in Portland. People are in need a few streets away from where you live or from where you drop off your kids at school.” Delehanty expressed a strong interest in integrating social justice into the classes she teaches at Reed and into the larger intellectual project of the college. She says, “I would welcome all discussions about how to bring Reed out into the community and how to bring more of the Portland community to Reed.”
