Raner Christercunean Collins (born 1952) is the Chief United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Arizona.

Born in Malvern, Arkansas, Collins received a B.A. from Arkansas Polytechnic College in 1973 and a J.D. from the University of Arizona College of Law in 1975. He was a law clerk in the Pima County, Arizona Attorney's Office from 1975 to 1976, and then a trial attorney for that office until 1981. He was a city magistrate for the City of Tucson Court from 1981 to 1983, thereafter returning to Pima County Attorney's Office as a county attorney until 1985. He was a superior court judge pro tempore of the Pima County Superior Court from 1985 to 1988, and a superior court judge there from 1988 to 1998.

On May 11, 1998, Collins was nominated by President Bill Clinton to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Arizona vacated by William D. Browning. Collins was confirmed by the United States Senate on July 31, 1998, and received his commission on August 3, 1998. He became Chief Judge on September 3, 2013, succeeding previous Chief Judge Roslyn O. Silver who took senior status.

On January 11, 2011, following the death of Chief Judge John Roll in the 2011 Tucson shooting, Collins ordered that the judges of the District of Arizona, all of whom knew Roll well, could not preside over the prosecution of the alleged murderer.
