Introducing our new Chief Operating Officer

By Mount Tamalpais College | August 5, 2019

We are thrilled to welcome Reed Goertler as our new Chief Operating Officer.

Reed Goertler has been committed to working in organizations that address the needs of underserved populations throughout his career and is looking forward to assisting the Prison University Project in its important mission. In 1998 he began working in 501(c)3 institutions affiliated with UCSF and Stanford University that addressed inequities in alcoholism/addiction and cancer research and funding. Reed oversaw administration, assuming the positions of Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer and Legal and Regulatory Affairs Officer. His early professional career spans work in the nascent biotech industry in finance and business development. Reed lives in Lafayette with his partner and the youngest of their five children. When not working, Reed enjoys kayaking, hiking and is pursuing a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology.

Please note that the Prison University Project became Mount Tamalpais College in September 2020.

It's been a rough few weeks in terms of media layoffs so I want to flag a job I'm helping hire for: @prisonjourn, which trains incarcerated people as journalists and helps them get published, is hiring a managing editor to run all of its editorial strategy https://prisonjournalismproject.org/job-posting-managing-editor/

Teaching @StanfordLaw students alongside incarcerated students at @MtTamCollege in #SanQuentin was a highlight of the year—with hopefully more to come!

A fascinating glimpse at the history of higher education at San Quentin! While many hurdles still exist when running a college with a prison as its campus, at least we no longer have to "copy, stencil, and mimeograph" course materials to bring them inside.
