International Student Program

At Liberty, we recognize the value and importance of multicultural education in an increasingly global world. Our students are striving to make a difference through their leadership, service, and education. International students add depth by bringing new perspectives and ideas, allowing for cross cultural learning within our own student body. They participate in areas of fine arts, athletics, service clubs, and academic organizations which provide opportunities to build friendships and connections as students learn and grow together.

If you have a desire to share your gifts, talents, and ideas with others in a biblical academic environment where students prepare to serve with excellence, we encourage you to contact our International Student Coordinator for more information.
