About Arren Mendezona Allegretti
Arren is a PhD candidate in the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology with a passion for collaboration and for experiential learning. Arren has joined the CCC to coordinate our new undergraduate opportunities initiative. Arren has made progress towards integrating collaborative conservation content into existing programs and classes via presentations to students in the classroom and in the field. She has developed several field trips around the area as experiential learning opportunities, including a biking tour around City of Fort Collins’ Natural Areas. Other objectives of the initiative include connecting undergrads to our Collaborative Conservation Fellow and alumni, as well as faculty and practitioners working in the field. Finally, she promotes these opportunities by elevating our visibility and communication across the University, with outreach to student clubs, departmental coordinators, and listservs. In addition to this, Arren is facilitating CCC graduate fellowships endeavors with Dr. Kim Skyelander. Arren enjoys swimming, traditional climbing, cooking, and traveling.
