Tracey Cromby

EWB philanthropy Officer

Tracey is motivated by helping people and delivering constructive process outcomes to smooth the way.  She  says that  “working in the humanitarian sector makes that meaningful.”

Her extensive experience in administration supports students to access the unique educational opportunities associated with the EWB Challenge.  This annual program engages 8,000 first year students from 33 universities across Australia and New Zealand to develop humanitarian engineering design solutions for sustainable cross-cultural development projects.

“One of the things that’s great about my role is supporting students to achieve an enlightened education…I’m continually inspired by the creative and innovative ideas that the first year university students come up with.”

Tracey relaxes with an eclectic range of creative pursuits including rock ‘n roll and rockabillly dancing, walking and writing.  She’s also working on a long-burn project to create an illuminated manuscript.
