“For nearly 50 years, I have been looking for the holy grail of what makes a good education for our young people in this very troubled world. Even when I planned LPCUWC in 1987, I wasn’t sure that this would be it. After the much closer encounter of serving on the Board for nearly 15 years, I’m convinced that the UWC movement holds the best promise for a better world.”
