Deliberate Diversity

At UWC ISAK Japan, we embrace diversity in all its forms to enrich our community. Our inclusive approach in education fosters global citizenship, empathy, and critical and creative thinking, preparing students to thrive in a diverse world.

Our Commitment to Deliberate Diversity

At UWC ISAK Japan, we believe in the transformative power of diversity. Our community is a dynamic blend of nationalities, cultures, beliefs, identities and ideas that reflects the many forms diversity can take. Beyond just visible differences, we embrace the unique experiences and insights each individual contributes, enriching our school community with diverse thoughts and perspectives.

Diversity of Thought and Perspective

Central to our educational philosophy is the diversity of thought and perspective. Our classrooms, residences and daily activities reflect global society and every individual voice represents another layer of depth to our community conversation. Open dialogues and respectful debates expose students to diverse opinions and worldviews, essential for developing critical thinkers and empathetic leaders adept at understanding our increasingly complex world.

The Importance of Socioeconomic Diversity

At UWC ISAK Japan, 70% of our students receive some level of financial assistance, which underscores our commitment to socioeconomic diversity. This allows us to offer a more authentic and enriching educational experience, deepening understanding and respect for differing life experiences and challenging stereotypes and social inequalities.

Why Deliberate Diversity Matters

  • Enhanced Learning Environment: Diversity in classrooms enhances creativity and critical thinking, as students learn to tackle problems from multiple perspectives.
  • Global Citizenship: Understanding and respecting diversity is vital in our interconnected world. Our graduates emerge as global citizens, poised to contribute meaningfully to diverse societies.
  • Empathy and Social Skills: Interacting with peers from diverse backgrounds fosters empathy, communication skills, and emotional intelligence.
  • Preparation for Future Challenges: Our diverse community equips students to excel in varied environments, preparing them to tackle the increasingly complex challenges in a rapidly changing world.

How We Foster Diversity

  • Financial Assistance Program: Our financial assistance program ensures that financial barriers do not prevent students from joining our diverse community.
  • Inclusive Admissions Policy: Our admissions process assesses students on their potential, independent of their socioeconomic background.
  • Cultural and Idea Exchange Opportunities: Our community regularly hosts events—most of which are student-initiated and organized—to facilitate cultural exchanges and the sharing of diverse perspectives.

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
