Since the first generation graduated in 2008, UWC Mostar has provided education to 995 students from 86 countries, 561 of them being international and 434 from BiH.
In May 2015, a group of UWC Mostar alumni started investigating ways to strengthen UWC Mostar’s alumni network. A stronger alumni network will both help alumni in their endeavours following their UWC education and will help College access the skills and recourses of its alumni.
Following consultations with College, an initial governance structure was proposed.
The Alumni Network will have two layers of governance. Firstly there will be an alumni board consisting of representatives from the alumni community and UWC Mostar. This board will provide overall direction to the College’s alumni relations strategy. The members of this board are yet to be determined. Secondly, there will be ‘Year Representatives’ from each generation. Year Representatives will be the first point of contact for alumni regarding issues related to the alumni network. They are further responsible for staying up-to-date with activities of co-years and for ensuring that College has their most recent data. Year Representatives will, together with College, take a leading role in the execution of the alumni relations strategy.
In 2017, the College appointed a Development director, who is also in charge of alumni relations.
Since then, the bodies mentioned above have accomplished the following:
- collected a database with alumni contacts
- launched an alumni giving campaign (1 Euro alumni giving campaign)
- organized UWC Mostar alumni networking events
