For 10 days, a group of 40 high school students, half from Lebanon and half from abroad, are participating in workshops, cultural events and field trips designed to help them learn and work through problems collaboratively.UWC is a self-styled education "movement" that seeks to instill empathy and social responsibility in its students. In addition to summer "short courses," like the one underway now, UWC's main offering is an International Baccalaureate program, which takes the place of the last years of high school.UWC offers the IB program at each of its 17 campuses worldwide.The Lebanon course carries a steep price tag – up to $700 per student, not including airfares – but Kaya Karam, the chair of UWC Lebanon, said the organization tries as much as possible to keep costs from being prohibitive.This is first program UWC has hosted in Lebanon, and the organization hopes to be able to host another next summer.
