Gina Collignon

Senior Associate for Justice Education

As the Senior Associate for Justice Education in the College of Social Justice, Gina Collignon develops and supports immersion learning travel programs that connect participants to activists and change-makers in new environments so participants are inspired to join related social justice campaigns in their home communities.

Over the last decade, Gina has worked to understand how experiential education and facilitated travel experiences can most effectively be used to empower individuals and communities to deeply engage with spirituality, justice, and self-development. Prior to joining CSJ, she spent several years leading U.S. teenagers on semester-long trips in South America with Where There Be Dragons. She was also the inaugural on-site director for the Princeton Bridge Year Program in Bolivia, a nine-month service gap year program. She served with the Peace Corps for three years in Bolivia and Ecuador.

Gina’s love of community and interconnection first manifested as a deep desire to understand our natural world. She has an undergraduate degree in Biology from Reed College and a joint Master of Science degree in Environment and Resources and Agronomy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
