UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations, and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.
We aspire to be a model international educational organization with significant impact on each of our learners to assume responsibility and demonstrate leadership for positive changes in the world.
We continually seek imaginative, meaningful innovations in our programs, in how students develop academically, socially, and in their orientation to serve others.
We share in the need to operate in a financially responsible manner, with all of us seeking ways to build a stronger institution so that the quality of our services is constantly improved and so that we continuously invest in better ways to deliver our mission.
We realize our ideals by interacting with one another with mutual respect and a constant awareness of the many cultures which make up our educational community.
