Third Culture Kids (TCKs) are those who have spent the majority of their developmental years outside their birth countries. Due to internationalization in higher education, the number of TCKs have increased on campuses. Professionals should acknowledge their international experience, linguistic ability, open-mindedness, flexibility, and tolerance towards other cultures and di!erences and seek them out to serve as cultural bridges when recruiting and supporting international or diverse cultural populations on campuses and in communities.
