Davis UWC Scholars at Wellesley College
UWC is an education movement bringing students of different nationalities, ethnicities and religious backgrounds together to promote intercultural understanding and work towards creating a more peaceful and sustainable future.
Comprised of 14 international schools and colleges around the world, the transformative educational experience draws upon Kurt Hahn’s seven educational guiding principles. You can read more about the UWC mission and their values at their official website.
In 2000 Wellesley became a founding partner in the Davis-United World College Scholars program, which helps UWC graduates attend American colleges and universities. In those 14 years more than 200 UWC alumnae have attended Wellesley through this program.
Wellesley shares many of the same values of the UWC program: disciplined, critical thinking; a recognition and celebration of the importance of diversity—of perspectives, life experiences, socioeconomic backgrounds, and of cultural, religious, and national heritage. The two institutions also share the values of leadership, service, and making a contribution to society.
Slater International Center has created this customized map to highlight a small group of our UWC Students and their activities, adventures, and achievements. Each pin represents a different student and includes her name, citizenship, UWC school, and information about her recent achievements. Explore many of the unique locations where our students are from, and how they are putting their UWC/Wellesley education to use to make a difference!
