History and Goals:
The Third Culture Kid Board was first created in Fall 2001. The Board meets once a week, and members serve as advisors who generate ideas and plans that the TCK Intern then sets into motion. The TCK Board’s main goal is to promote events catered towards the Lewis & Clark College TCK community and advise the TCK intern.
If you are interested in being a member, please email our TCK Intern, Brenna, at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the International Students and Scholars Office located on the 3rd floor of Templeton, above the Student Government offices!
