We Are Husky Nation.

Our alumni are living proof that a degree from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE) prepares our grads for fulfilling careers in a variety of sectors. From nonprofits to fortune 500s, ARE alumni leverage their knowledge and skills to make a difference. We are proud of our alumni's accomplishments, and want to continue to engage with them after their days at UConn have passed. Stay in touch and stay connected, because regardless of when you graduate, you're part of the ARE and CAHNR communities.
