Cynthia Dukich is dedicated to living the positive change she hopes to see in the world. Seeking to use her experience to inspire and support others as they gain the vision and education needed to realize their dreams, she strives to facilitate experiences for scholars that enhance academic growth as they create a rigorous, but supportive and welcoming community of scholars. She first began part-time work with Eastern's TRiO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program fourteen years ago, and since that time has been committed to the TRiO McNair mission of providing opportunities that prepare McNair participants for success at the doctoral level. She started as the full-time Counselor/Academic Coordinator in 2004.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Asian Studies: Chinese Language and Culture and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Eastern Washington University in creative writing with a secondary emphasis in literary editing. A former California State Park docent, Cynthia has also worked as a proofreader, a freelance editor, a ski instructor and art teacher. Ever exploring her relationship to people, places and cultures, she has travelled to China, Egypt, Southeast Asia, Europe, and most of the National Parks of the western U.S. She lives in Cheney, Washington with her husband, son and ill-mannered Quaker parrot named Dudley Do-Right.
