Diversity within countries

30 March 2017

In addition to increasing the number of nationalities represented within our student bodies, we have a commitment to ensure that we represent the diversity within countries.

Young people from different ethnic, racial, political or religious backgrounds often live in close proximity without truly engaging, or in many cases without ever meeting, each other. At UWC we encourage young people to truly engage with those people who they find the most difficult to approach. This is why we actively seek to attract young people from opposing sides of conflicts, from ethnicities that do not freely mix or whose lives are just truly different despite their shared official nationality.
