The United World College in Mostar (UWC Mostar) is one of 18 schools and colleges around the world in the UWC (United World Colleges) movement. UWC is a global educational movement with the mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. The UWC movement was founded in 1962 with the opening of UWC Atlantic College, and now spans 18 schools and colleges across four continents, as well as 155 UWC National Committees who help to select students from their country. The majority of schools and colleges admit students exclusively for the last two years of school in order to complete the internationally recognised IB Diploma programme. A number of schools and colleges also offer a Foundation IB year to help students prepare for the rigorous pre-university course that is the IB Diploma, and several offer opportunities for students as young as 3 to experience an education focused on fostering peace and international understanding.
The United World College in Mostar (UWC Mostar)(Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian Latin: Koledž Ujedinjenog svijeta u Mostaru) was key founded by Elisatheth Rehn (UN Special Rapporteur on the Secretary General for the United Nations Mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina 1995-1999) and Lamija Tanović (Chair, Humanity in Action Bosnia and Herzegovina) and established in 2006 and officially opened by Queen Noor of Jordan. UWC Mostar is the first UWC with an explicit aim to contribute to the reconstruction of a post-conflict society and also the first to be housed within an existing public school (see also Education in Bosnia and Herzegovina).
UWC Mostar is the twelfth college in the United World Colleges family and the fourth college in Europe.
UWC Mostar was founded (key founding members Elisabeth Rehn and Lamija Tanović) as a joint initiative of UWC and the International Baccalaureate Organization with the aim to support the peace process in the country and the region. The college is implementing recognizable model of post-conflict education, practically demonstrating a convincing, fully integrated curriculum, thus offering a milestone for broader educational reform in the county and the region.
