For a rare international “good news” story to brighten your February, come learn how a small college in Metchosin is making a huge difference to the world. Founded in 1974, Pearson is a United World College, where some 200 students from 90 countries live, study and grow together in a transformational environment.
Eighteen United World Colleges around the world share a mission to “make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.” For nearly five decades, thousands of Pearson graduates have carried this message from Metchosin to every corner of the globe, inspiring change in their communities.
