Freeman Foundation Renews Support of Emerging Leaders in Higher Education through United Board Fellows Program


The United Board is pleased to announce that the Freeman Foundation has renewed its support for the United Board Fellows Program, an important leadership development program for mid-career faculty and administrators.

“As the United Board celebrates its Centennial, I would like to recognize the enduring friendship of the Freeman family and the Freeman Foundation,” said Nancy E.

In recognition of the Freeman Foundation’s most recent support, the following four educators are being named 2022-2023 United Board Freeman Fellows:

  • Meldie Apag, Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan, Philippines;
  • Yusi ta Kusumarini, Petra Christian University, Indonesia;
  • Jin Ai The, Atma Jaya University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia; and
  • Ka Fu Yung, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the United Board Fellows Program. Learn more about the program here.
