Senior Media Education Specialist
Cynthia is adjunct faculty and supervising instructor in the department of Teaching and Learning at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development at New York University. As an educator and public historian, her interest and work in the politics and impact of race and racism in the United States, is multi-modal, extending her experiences as a culturally responsive and social justice educator, progressive education advocate, museum consultant, education curator, and interpretive specialist to diverse cultural and educational institutions and organizations across the United States. The social justice issue she cares about most is ethnic-racial socialization, the impact in individual's lives and its omnipresence within racialized social systems, because such lenses have ways of shaping understandings of the self, communities and how people relate to one another. What Cynthia loves about working at EVC is the commitment to student-centered experiential learning.
