As a child of immigrant parents and the first in her family to attend university, Tricia understands first-hand the transformational power of education. She has spent her career working to ensure that future generations experience the same opportunities she did.
Tricia King is Vice President Global Engagement for CASE, a global NGO engaged in the business of advancing education to transform lives and society. She works to build the resilience and sustainability of university leadership teams in Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Australia and Europe.
Before CASE Tricia spent eleven years on the senior leadership team of Birkbeck, a unique, world class, research-intensive college of the University of London. As Pro-Vice-Master for Strategic Engagement she helped create new strategic, connected, conceptual approaches that allowed Birkbeck to survive and thrive in some very hard times. She worked closely and effectively with successive government ministers and civil servants to advocate for Birkbeck and successfully influence government policy. She helped create bridges with London corporate and business organisations.
Tricia played rugby for England and Great Britain and was the first ever Women’s Rugby Football Union press officer. She recently became a Fellow of Birkbeck.
