On behalf of the Board of Directors of Pearson College UWC, Perrett Laver is delighted to announce the appointment of Craig Davis as the College’s new President and Head, effective 1 August 2020.
Most recently based in Singapore, Craig served as Director of Education for Dulwich College International, a school network spanning London, U.K. and four Southeast Asian countries. Prior to that, Craig took on a senior leadership role with Mulgrave International School of Vancouver where he helped shepherd the final stage of a $30 million capital campaign. While there, he joined a senior science class project week hosted on and around Pearson College during which he was introduced to the campus and Race Rocks.
Craig’s international teaching and education sector administrative experience – including positions in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Vancouver – is an excellent fit for Pearson’s uniquely global student, campus and alumni communities. His past experience as an instructor with the University of British Columbia First Nations Access Program instilled in him an interest in Indigenous cultures and community. More recently, he revised an IB Theory of Knowledge curriculum with a focus on Indigenous Knowledge systems.
Craig is a Permanent Resident of Canada and will be moving to campus with his spouse, Vancouver native Sarah Lee, and three of his four children, Isaac (10), Elizabeth (6) and Ciaran (6). Older daughter Caitlin (16) is currently completing secondary school in Australia. Both Craig and Sarah have family connections in Victoria and the Lower Mainland.
Craig and his family have shared that they are thrilled to be moving back to British Columbia and, in particular, to the Pearson campus. He is very well-acquainted with the UWC movement and counts many individuals and leaders from UWC schools and colleges as colleagues and friends.
