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.
