The mission of UWC is to make education a force to unite people.

The mission of the United World Colleges clearly states that the ultimate goal of all components of the UWC movement is the unification of people, nations, and cultures for sustainable future. How? Through education, that is to say teaching generation after generation to become catalysts for positive change in the world through the following core values:

  • 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

United World Colleges is a unique organisation. It is the only global educational NGO that brings students together from all over the world, selected from within their own countries on merit and regardless of their ability to pay. These students come together at one of 18 UWC schools and colleges that aim to foster international understanding, peace and sustainability.

UWC Adriatic brings highly motivated young students from all over the world so they can live and learn together. Our objective is to help students become active, involved and educated citizens whose attitudes towards understanding and community service will be a powerful catalyst for change. We believe we can cause a ripple effect in the wider communities of our students by developing these young men and women into understanding and compassionate peacemakers. In short, we aim to create a better world through education.
