Third Culture Kids

Third Culture Kids at Liberty

"A Third Culture Kid (TCK) is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental years outside the parents' culture. The TCK frequently builds relationships to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any. Although elements from each culture may be assimilated into the TCK's life experience, the sense of belonging is in relationship to others of similar background."
- David C. Pollock and Ruth E. Van Reken

The Center For Global Engagement seeks to be a resource to the wide spectrum of Third Culture Kids (TCKs) in the University's student body. If you are currently a TCK studying at Liberty, a TCK considering enrolling, or just a friend of TCKs, we would love to hear from you and help answer any questions you might have about life as a TCK on our campus. Whether you are a business kid, a military kid, a missionary kid (MK), or another type of TCK, we'd love to meet you and be a part of your time at Liberty.

We'd love to let you know about upcoming TCK events and other TCK connections at Liberty. Email us to get on our mailing list.
