Brief Bio:
Dr. MacCluskie has been a full-time Counselor Educator at CSU since 1994.  She has a lengthy history of working with people in helping capacities across many types of institutions.  These include working in several residential and out-patient public and private community agencies and the Federal Prison system.  A recent sabbatical in Kenya was a pivotal event in her professional development as she became even more acutely aware that the disparities in human rights, social justice, access to resources, and access to power, are unquestionably problems that extend far beyond water contamination in Flint and the economic depletion of our Rust Belt in the Great Lakes Region.   Her career has been focused on pedagogy and student development, and these themes continue to inform her work, on a grand scale; her current professional goals are promotion of health and sustainability for the entire biosphere.
Research Interests:
Dr. MacCluskie's current, and now only, area of professional interest is deep ecology and embodying the Active Hope (Macy & Johnstone, 2012) model toward global sustainability.  This encompasses  aiming toward a planetary paradigm shift from exploitation toward respect, from extraction of resources to regeneration, and from competition toward toward cooperation.  As a counselor educator and mental health professional, she recognizes the important skill set mental health professionals can bring to the table as we conceptualize how to turn this gigantic mess around.  She is actively seeking like-minded people to join a newly forming group of similarly alarmed people who are interested in using their power and social capital toward that end.
