Greg Caldwell, Associate Dean of Students and Director of International Students and Scholars, has been invited to give a presentation on Lewis & Clark’s TCK (Third Culture Kid) program at the annual NAFSA: Association of International Educators’ conference in Vancouver, Canada at the end of May 2011. Caldwell will join Tina Quick, author of “The Global Nomads Guide to University Transition,” and Amy Daly Gardner, director of the Office of Intercultural Affairs at Clark University, on the NAFSA program.

In October the three panelists spoke at the Region XI conference in Providence, Rhode Island, Caldwell via SKYPE.  Their presentation was titled “Neither Domestic Nor International:  How Universities Can Support the Global Nomad.”  Caldwell provided concrete examples from Lewis & Clark’s program. Gardner, who is initiating a new TCK program at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, praised Lewis & Clark’s program, stating, “Lewis & Clark represents the gold standard by which other universities can measure their success.”

The presentation in October was selected as a “Regional Highlight” session and, thus qualifies for the national conference program. The Vancouver presentation will be Caldwell’s final responsibility at the College. He retires on May 31, 2011 after 35 years of service.
