Lester B. Pearson College, United World College of the Pacific is one of thirteen United World Colleges (UWC) around the world. It is named after the late Canadian Prime Minister Lester Bowles Pearson, winner of the 1957 Nobel Peace Prize. The mission of the college is to promote peace, sustainability and international understanding by bringing young people from all walks of life, regardless of financial ability, together in a small and isolated village-like community. 200 students from 100 countries come together to share their lives as they finish their high school education.
Despite the short history of the school, many alumni are young leaders in human rights, international development, business, law, science and other fields. Students at the college are eligible, after graduation, to participate in the Shelby Davis Scholarship programme, which funds undergraduate study (based on need) for UWC students at universities, such as Princeton University, Colby College, Columbia University, College of the Atlantic, Harvard University, and Middlebury College, in the United States.
The director of the College as of 2006 is David Hawley, a graduate of Harvard University.
There are 5 residence houses that house all students of Pearson College as well as some faculty members. Many other faculty members live on campus in separate faculty houses. All student houses are mixed gender by floors and students live in shared rooms of 4 to 5 people. Meals are served by a single cafeteria at the College.
Its proximity to Peddar Bay allows the College to have extensive waterfront activities. A fleet of sail boats, kayaks, canoes, as well as diving equipment are stored on the docks and in the floating marine biology building.
