Rektor of UWC Red Cross Nordic
Hege Myhre joined UWC Red Cross Nordic in 2020, after having served 15 years of leadership at Kongsberg International School, the last five as the Head of School.
Since 2005 Hege has been part of the IB network, acting as an IB consultant as well as an IB Chair for synchronized CIS/IB/NEASC/WASC visits. Hege has taught students from MYP to University level, and her specialised focus on active student participation and student-led curriculum design has resulted in working projects with schools and industry in Canada, North America, Europe and Asia. Combining her passion for holistic education and student leadership with structured action research studies, Hege has helped to reshape leadership structures in several educational institutions in different cultures.
Hege is the first Norwegian Rektor at UWC Red Cross Nordic and she believes that its three pillars – Humanitarian, Environmental and Nordic – are essential in further development of the college and the experience the students have at RCN.
"Being the Rektor at UWC Red Cross Nordic is both humbling and yet extremely enriching. RCN opens myriads of possibilities for growth based on diverse human resources set in a Nordic context, with humanitarian values at the core, and a commitment to developing responsible citizenship for a peaceful and sustainable world. This simply speaks to my heart!"
