Since its founding, the United Board has promoted sharing of resources across borders and among institutions. Today, we recognize that Asia has grown to be a rich repository of expertise, and the educators in our network of Asian colleges and universities are eager to share their ideas and experiences with each other.
Educators engaged in our programs gain more than new skills – they also build and strengthen professional networks. Through our programs, educators connect with their peers in other institutions and countries; share their perspectives on whole person education; find new models to adapt for use on their own campuses; and build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships.
Learn more about these areas of programming:
- Faculty Scholarship Program. Thirty-six Faculty Scholars are currently earning advanced degrees at Asian higher education institutions outside of their home country, with the support of the United Board Faculty Scholarship Program.
- United Board Fellows Program. Twenty rising leaders in our 2016-2017 class of United Board Fellows will experience four-month placements at Asian colleges or universities and connect with each other through leadership programming in the United States and Asia.
- The Institute for Advanced Study in Asian Cultures and Theologies, an annual summer institute, convenes scholars for study, reflection, and sharing on topics of theology and cultural traditions.
