The UWC Mission

“UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.” 

Our UWC Values

Driven by our mission and these nine values, our movement inspires and empowers young people while transcending the diversities of socio-economic background, culture, race, religion, nationality, and beyond.

  • International and intercultural understanding
  • Celebration of difference
  • Personal responsibility and integrity
  • Mutual responsibility and respect
  • Compassion and service
  • Respect for the environment
  • A sense of idealism
  • Personal challenge
  • Action and personal example

As alumni go forward to their next endeavours, they take with them a lifelong commitment to these values and a shared will to make a positive difference in the world, never truly leaving the UWC movement behind.
