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

    The striking feature of the UWC is that they embrace the entire world. They are unique and they are conscious of their responsibilities.

    Nelson Mandela,

    Late Honorary President of UWC, Former President of South Africa

    Peace cannot be achieved merely by the stroke of a pen on paper; it is rooted in sustained people-to-people contacts that can generate the kind of understanding and trust which are prerequisites to lasting peace.

    HM Queen Noor of Jordan,

    President of UWC

    I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial and above all, compassion.

    Kurt Hahn,

    German Educator, Founder of United World Colleges

    I believe in two powerful forces in this world, love and education. I discovered both in UWC.

    Mark Wang,

    Board Chairman & Founder of UWC Changshu China. RCN 98 – 00

    The sense of idealism and a purposeful life really makes the UWC experience unique and its impact life-long.
