Colegios del Mundo Unido locate a center in Cantabria

DEP realized the project of the school


The Spanish Committee Foundation of Colegios del Mundo Unido (CMU) decided, finally, creating the only school of United World Colleges of the State in Cantabria.

The organization studied for months, along with DEP Strategic Consultancy possibility of locating one of its International Baccalaureate schools in Spain.

DEP’s task has been to analyze the feasibility and the preparation of educational project to adapt the values of Colegios del Mundo in the special cultural characteristics, demographic and education of the countries of the Mediterranean basin. They have collaborated in the selection of the location, definition and distribution of the different areas of the campus and the realization of financial projections and monitoring throughout the process until the final approval of the project.

The Spanish Committee Foundation of Colegios del Mundo Unido (CMU) and DEP have worked very closely when choosing between two finalists: the Cantabrian community and Alicante. Finally, it has been chosen the first option, created by Fundación Comillas.

In principle, the building that will house the only CMU State will be the Universidad Pontifícia de Comillas and host to 250 students per year.

United World Colleges is an international movement whose aim is to promote peace and international understanding, without any connotation of ideological, political or religious. Currently there are 12 Colegios del Mundo Unido and 124 CMU national committees in different countries.
