Residential Assistants

Residential Assistants make a warm community in the dorm and organize activities and field trips into Boston and Cambridge. They may also have some classroom responsibilities, such as assisting with the motor building project or homework. Some Residential Assistants attended WTP when they were in high school.

WTP Director and WTP-EECS Track Coordinator

Cynthia Skier

MIT alumna: SB 1974 Humanities and Science
SM 1981 Sloan Management
Hometown: Lexington, MA

I have been the WTP Director since fall 2002, after the first pilot summer. Before that I managed computer software companies and worked in management consulting. My two children are adults long "out of the nest." In my free time I like to sing, read mysteries, and watch old movies, especially film noire, musicals and science fiction. In addition to my WTP responsibilities, I also direct the Industrial Connection Program in the MIT EECS department.
