High school students from around the world visit UNM

April 4, 2016 - Aaron Hilf

More than a dozen high school students from around the world visited The University of New Mexico campus recently. The trip was the result of a new partnership between UNM’s Africana Studies program and United World College-USA (UWC-USA), a two-year residential school for international teenagers.

“We wanted to have them on campus because our program is extremely global in its makeup,” said Dr. Robert Jefferson, director, Africana Studies. “We wanted them to get an idea of how Africana Studies intersects with so many different facets of society and give them the chance to see our beautiful campus.”

UWC-USA is an international baccalaureate school made up of more than 230 students, representing 64 countries from around the world. The school, which is one of 15 UWC campuses around the world and the only one in the U.S., is located in Montezuma, N.M.
