UWCSEA Strategy

East-IS-BreakTime

UWCSEA Strategy

At UWCSEA we have a rich and textured history that has brought us to the present—this unique moment between being what we were, and becoming what we will be. It is our Mission that will continue to guide us in this transformation, renewed and re-imagined for today’s students and tomorrow’s world.

Our Mission and Strategy together provide the unwavering focus on both our deeper long-term purpose and on the students in front of us today.

The UWCSEA 2023–2030 Strategy: Shaping the Future was launched in August 2023 after a collaborative process involving stakeholders from across the community. 

It is a living plan and is reviewed each year, both to assess progress and to adjust according to our changing context and evolving aspiration. College and campus leadership teams build their individual plans and projects to drive forward specific strategies over one, two, or several years.

UWCSEA-Strategy-2.0

Our strategic vision 2023–2030

Our Strategy to 2030 and Beyond provides a framework and is “more like a river than a rock” in that it can bend and remain responsive to what lies ahead.  A successful Strategy will ensure our students continue to experience a world-class education, supported by outstanding teachers and teams and a diverse, caring College community where everyone belongs. Our commitment to our Mission will lead us to explore possibilities that will result in a peaceful and more sustainable future.

Our four Strategic Commitments are:

These Commitments will inform our strategic priorities each year and ensure a whole College approach to our development. This development will take place in a context where our first commitment and starting point will continue to be providing a world-class education for our students and the fulfilment of our inspirational mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.

UWCSEA Strategy: 2023–2030

Connecting to the UWC Movement Strategy: 2018 and beyond

UWCSEA is proud to support the overarching aim of the UWC Strategy, which is to increase the impact of UWC Movement as a whole in transforming education into a force to achieve a more peaceful and sustainable future.

The UWC Strategy: 2018 and beyond, with its three key areas of ‘Seek’, ‘Educate’ and ‘Inspire’ was announced in early 2018. It was one of the guiding documents consulted in the process of devising the UWCSEA Strategy.

While the UWCSEA Strategy and Strategic Vision contributes most obviously to the ‘Educate’ strand, the College and our two campuses in Singapore have important roles in the areas of ‘Seek’ and ‘Inspire’ in order to extend the impact of the UWC Movement as a whole. We look forward to working towards a peaceful and more sustainable future together.
