Reina Smarkel has served as the Undergraduate Program Coordinator in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering for over five years. Reina, an alumna of the University of California, Davis, joined this campus community as an undeclared undergraduate. She greatly benefitted from the numerous resources offered to students, and her experiences working as a Resident Advisor and Orientation Leader. She completed a B.S. in Human Development and a minor in Education, and went on to earn a M.A. in Higher Education Leadership at California State University, Sacramento. Reina is grateful to work in a dynamic environment at her alma mater, and for the opportunities to help students navigate their educational and developmental experiences at a large, research university.
