Cyndy Trent
Coordinator of International Initiatives and Special Projects

Cynthia manages the faculty-led short term international travel studies in addition to coordinating other internationally—related events. She also designs educational seminars for groups of visiting international delegates and provides opportunities for foreign visitors to participate in specialized tours of the Fresno State campus. Ms. Trent loves international travel and has been fortunate to have visited much of western Europe, the Caribbean and North America, in addition to living two years in Nigeria. She spent a summer in France on a faculty-led travel study while pursuing her undergraduate degree in French. Cynthia believes, “International travel can open one’s mind to other cultures and ways of thinking and living, leading to more tolerant and positive attitudes toward people who are different from us.
