1. UM Conservation Biology Graduates

Dear UM Conservation Biology Graduates,

As more and more UM Conservation Biology students finish their degrees, and as former students advance in their post-graduate careers, this community contains a growing number of leaders in the field of CB, filling important roles at universities; in federal, regional, state and local agencies; and in non-profit organizations.

I’d welcome your suggestions on how best to develop and maintain connections among UM CB graduates, and between graduates and current students. To start, Anup Joshi and I would like to create a resource on our website (www.consbio.umn.edu) that highlights what CB grads are doing now. We’d like some basic information from you, including narratives that will help us, you, and current and prospective students know more about what it’s like to be a UM CB graduate.
