Since the first generation graduated in 2008, UWC Mostar has provided education to 1098 students from 95 countries, 641 of them being international and 457 students from B&H
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.. 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
The UWC Mostar Alumni Board is an alumni led body that assists and advises UWC Mostar on alumni engagement. It has two major aims:
1) To strengthen the alumni network (alumni to alumni)
2) To strengthen the relationship between alumni and the College
In August 2020, a new governance structure of the the Board has been established consisting of enthusiastic, successful and motivated alums committed to the UWC mission and values. Here are the board members in the school year 2020/2021:
Selma Begović (Class of '10)
