Philip Geier declares: “We’re not here just to be a school. We’re here to change the world.” Geier is president of the Armand Hammer United World College of the American West (UWC-USA). The “college” (in the British sense of the word) is an upper-secondary school with 200 students and two dozen faculty from 80 countries or more. Situated amid traditional Hispanic settlements in New Mexico’s scenic Sangre de Cristo Mountains, UWC-USA brings together young people (ages 16-19) from many nations, races, and social backgrounds for challenging pre-university studies and voluntary service.
