The leadership at felt more horizontal than any other organization I have been part of. Generally speaking, there is a great level of trust and respect between students and administration, but there is always room for improvement. I would appreciate seeing less bureaucracy and politics in administration, particularly speaking about divesting the college's endowment funds from the fossil fuel industry, as well as other harmful industries. In general, students and administration got along very well, as everyone tends to appreciate the work that everyone else does. This mutual respect allowed for a great deal of empowerment, as both students and people in administration often ask each other for help with projects and collaborate on many things together. In terms of responding to problems, the administration took issues that the students brought up seriously, and did what they could to address those problems. In my opinion, issues were dealt with fairly and communication was clear to both students and parents.

UWC has excellent school leadership. They encourage students to take control of their academics and life choices and help them understand the value of taking into consideration the views of others and how choices impact others. There is a rigorous application process that weeds out those who don't see their education as a force to unite and make a real difference in the world, whether in education, politics, science, medicine or environmental sustainability. School leadership is positive and highly effective.

I had a lot of respect for certain people in positions of power, but it certainly felt like some of them had been there for too long. There were younger teachers who had real vision and they were often turned away, which was disheartening. When a peer and I pitched a community-wide project, we were respectfully given time in a faculty meeting, but not taken very seriously. Two years later, I found out they took on the project. I did feel that there was respect for the students, but insufficient support. Especially since mental health is an important conversation now, the school should increase its resources. My family was quite hands-off so I would have trouble advising very involved parents.
