Welcome CMBC Alumni
The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation’s MAS-MBC and Ph.D. training programs were established in 2004. Almost 300 students have received their degrees and are transferring their interdisciplinary education into influential positions across many fields that help to preserve our marine and other natural resources. Alumni are working in city, state, and federal government positions, and with well known NGOs and advocacy organization, museums, educational institutions, and environmental consulting firms in the U.S., Indonesia, South Africa, Germany, Mexico, India, Chile, Australia, France, Panama, Micronesia and China.
The intent of the CMBC Alumni Community is to improve personal and professional connections among our alumni, maintain alumni involvement with CMBC’s current students and to take pride in our accomplishments.
