Who we are
UWC depends on the dedication and expertise of volunteers to promote UWC ideals and select future students. These volunteers form National Committees and operate in 150+ countries worldwide.
The UWC Syrian National Committee (UWC Syria)'s mandate is to advance the UWC mission and increase UWC's impact in Syria. This is achieved by reaching out to potential Syrian and Syrian Palestinian applicants, encouraging applications, selecting prospective students, preparing those selected to attend UWC, and supporting them during their studies as needed. Many students go on to keep in touch with UWC Syria after their graduation, and to volunteer on the Committee themselves.
UWC Syria functions within the values of 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, and action and personal example.
