At Georgia Gwinnett College, Dr. Cindy Achat-Mendes is focused on cultivating an enriched academic environment for students of all backgrounds. Her teaching philosophy is simply that all students have the ability to succeed in STEM – provided they have the tools needed to succeed. Thus, her work is centered on equipping students with critical learning skills, while identifying barriers to their success and creating effective solutions that meet their needs.
Achat-Mendes is privileged to serve the diverse student body of GGC and endeavors to achieve synergy in this diversity. She is passionate about mentoring student bench research in order to prepare students for careers in STEM. She also helped create the Peer Supplemental Instruction (PSI) program to help STEM majors succeed in rigorous coursework.
Achat-Mendes began college as an international student from Trinidad and Tobago and personally understands the need to create a fair and welcoming academic environment for all students, regardless of origin, orientation, ethnicity and academic background.
