Our Mission and Vision

The founding mission of UWC Atlantic was ahead of its time. 

Today, that mission to unite different perspectives to foster understanding and overcome conflict is perhaps as relevant today as ever. In many respects though, the world is vastly different to the one into which UWC was born.

In our 60th anniversary year, UWC Atlantic has launched a 10-year plan to deal with the modern day challenges that humanity faces. To help transform the structures that have taken us to climate and ecological breakdown, social injustice and inequality.

Transformative Education for Global Impact positions the college as a pioneer within the education world, including an innovative new educational pathway developed in partnership with the International Baccalaureate.

Four Key Pillars

The 31-point roadmap for our new 10-year vision is based on four key pillars:

Building a COURAGEOUS FUTURE empowering students to act in creating a more peaceful and sustainable world.Creating an ENGAGED COMMUNITY building trust, relationships and capacity.Building a SUSTAINABLE HOME through our connection to the natural and built environment.Fostering a culture of INSPIRED COMMITMENT enabling our purpose and promise.

 "Our vision is bold, our ambition statement is far-reaching and I hope our community - our students, alumni, staff, and supporters will listen to our clarion call as they listened to Kurt Hahn's - you are needed!"

Want to know more?

We believe our new vision is, in many respects, as ambitious as the principles on which the UWC movement was founded.

We are looking to partner with like-minded individuals and organisations to help make this vision a reality and we would love to hear from you if you would like to be a part of this educational transformation.
