At UWC Maastricht we believe our students and staff are the primary actors of a re-imagined education, which fosters multicultural and international understanding, celebrates differences, develops critical thinking and promotes peace and sustainability.
Our students are given opportunities, according to their age, throughout their time at UWC Maastricht to develop their self-initiative and reach out to the community. They are involved in service, organize awareness raising campaigns and student-led conferences. They are also engaged in Project Weeks in Maastricht or abroad. The opportunity to present and debate about their own cultures and global issues is at the core of all of these projects and activities. Many programmes are being introduced into our school, both in Secondary and Primary, to ensure that we make a positive IMPACT. There is not a general agreement on what impact really means or how it can be measured. For us at UWC Maastricht, it’s about achieving the aims of a planned action, assessing the risks involved for all the parts and always-always evaluating the results to inform improvement next time around.
This website, news section and blogs try to bring to the public light much of what we do at UWC Maastricht to intentionally ensure a positive impact in the context of Maastricht, its population but also the home communities of our students. This is so in addition to the academic programme, tutorial system and service programme that are already in place to support and encourage our students in pursuing their various goals.
