postheadericon Overview

The United Board works with colleges and universities to enhance Christian presence through whole person education in higher education in Asia. We share expertise in educational capacity-building and promote humanistic values, leadership, networking and collaboration. 

Whole person education is at the core of our programming. It addresses the varied academic, professional, personal, and spiritual needs of students. It empowers students for their own personal and professional growth, and nurtures a sense of responsibility that encourages them to apply their knowledge in the service of others.



Through our five program areas, we strive to respond to the diverse needs and opportunities facing our colleagues in higher education throughout the Asian region. Our programs encompass broad, comprehensive themes in whole person education, with a special focus on faculty and leadership development. We also provide grants to support academic programs deemed of relevance to our mission.
