UWC DILIJAN COLLEGE HOSTS RSC PRESENTATION ON NAGORNO-KARABAKH

As part of the longer term effort to support innovative education in Armenia, the RSC offered an interactive presentation on Nagorno-Karabakh for a group of students and faculty at the international UWC Dilijan College on 10 March. The RSC offers a regular series of activities and events for the UWC Dilijan student body, both in Yerevan and at their Dilijan campus.

An international co-educational boarding school, UWC Dilijan evolved from the original idea to create Dilijan International School of Armenia, first conceived in 2006 by Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend with the support of other Founding Donors, and is the fourteenth United World College in the world. Supported by a large-scale philanthropic initiative to fund the construction of the campus as well as an admissions policy that aims to make places available to anyone regardless of their socio-economic background on the basis of demonstrated need, UWC Dilijan opened in the summer of 2014 and has a diverse international body of students, with 188 students from 63 different countries, and 37 academic staff members from 17 different countries.
