Meet our staff

In addition to the extremely talented faculty who teach and learn alongside our students daily, a dedicated group of staff and administrators support student learning and the UWC mission on the playing fields, in the experiential education program, in the dormitories, the dining hall, and in support of the physical plant.

“Education is about individual accomplishment, but it is about so much more. It is about how individual accomplishment can be part of a better future for all.”
