postheadericon Overview


The United Board works with a dynamic network of universities and colleges to enhance Christian presence through Whole Person Education (WPE) in higher education in Asia. We share expertise in educational capacity-building and promote leadership, networking and collaboration and humanistic values.  

Our leadership and faculty development programs - Asian University Leaders ProgramUnited Board Fellows ProgramUnited Board Faculty Scholarship Program and Institute for Advanced Study in Asian Cultures and Theologies - help young and rising faculty members and administrators turn their aspirations into concrete plans, through study for advanced degrees, short-term fellowships, skills-building seminars and networking.  When program participants return to their own colleges and universities, they are ready to transform individual experiences into institutional strengths to benefit generations of students. 

Our institutional grants program currently centers on the following areas: Service-Learning and Campus-Community PartnershipsInterreligious Understanding and Peace Education; and Asian Folklore and Cultural Heritage Studies. These are broad themes that reflect key issues for Asia and build on the existing strengths of the United Board.  In designing these initiatives, we  consulted with our network who  advised us on needs, available expertise and means for collaboration. 


The United Board has also worked with institutions in the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad program of the U.S. Agency for International Development.
