Graduation marks the end of our students’ experiences in Montezuma and the beginning of their journeys as global changemakers and advocates for a more peaceful and sustainable world. Graduation is open to the public and is an opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about UWC-USA to join us on campus for a remarkable celebration of student accomplishment. 

107 students representing 65 countries are expected to graduated during the United World College-USA Class of 2019 commencement on Saturday, May 25, on the Montezuma, N.M., campus. 

Dr. Musimbi Kanyoro, the chairwoman of the United World College International Board, was our commencement speaker. Learn more about Dr. Kanyoro here.

Dr. Len Necefer ’07, recipient of the 2019 Giulio Regeni Alumni Impact Award, also spoke at graduation. Learn more about Len and his advocacy for environmental issues. 

Details about UWC-USA’s 2020 graduation will be published early in 2020. In the meantime we invite you to enjoy a video of the 2019 graduation ceremony.
