We welcome proposals for projects that advance whole person education.
Learn more about the ways that United Board grants support whole person education at our network institutions.
Developing a Spirit of Giving
A United Board grant helped Didik Wahjudi and his colleagues at Petra Christian University expand their knowledge of effective fundraising practices.
A Human Science
“Psychology is a human science, and its ultimate goal is to serve humans,” according to Chen I-Jun (Evelyn), a professor in the School of Education at Soochow University in mainland China. That focus on serving others inspired her to introduce Soochow University psychology students to service-learning.
Building a Journalism Program, Step by Step
Myanmar Institute of Theology wanted to develop a journalism course to introduce students to the field, so it turned to the United Board’s network for sources of expertise.
Teaching Empathy through Design
Architecture students at Petra Christian University listened to people living with disabilities describe their aspirations and their day-to-day lives, and then collaborated with them on inclusive designs.
A new volume shares key findings from environmental projects that the United Board supported over the course of five years at 12 Indian colleges and universities.
From Textbooks to Picture Books
Student-centered learning has been a guiding force in Dr. Zhu Yunzhi’s work as an educator at Ginling College, and this has opened her students’ eyes to new possibilities in language teaching and learning.
Sharing Knowledge between One Community and Another
With support from the United Board’s Bamboo Grants Program, Stephanus Mandagi’s project on local knowledge and coastal communities helps students at Sam Ratulangi understand the role that mangroves play in coastal conservation.
A Respectful Spirit of Inquiry
“Students need to be engaged in discussions about local culture as part of their whole person education,” Irving Domingo Rio believes, and a grant from the United Board to Central Philippine University enabled this political scientist and mountain climber to turn his fieldwork in the Central Panay region of the Philippines into a teaching module on the conflict resolution practices of indigenous people.
Sustainable Benefits from Tourism
Residents of Andong Reusey, located about 120 km from Phnom Penh, felt they were experiencing few economic benefits from the increasing number of visitors to their community. For Rith Sam Ol, a senior lecturer at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), this dilemma created an opportunity for students in her community-based tourism (CBT) course to test newly acquired knowledge and skills.
