The United Board is pleased to announce that 19 young leaders in higher education have been selected for the 2016-2017 United Board Fellows Program. The Fellows represent nine countries and regions of Asia and bring a wide range of academic disciplines and administrative experience to the program.
Now in its fourteenth year, the United Board Fellows Program is implementing a new program structure, one that will enable participants to better explore the dynamics of higher education leadership and management. Fellows participate in a three-week intensive summer institute in the United States at Boston College, a two- to four-month placement at an Asian higher education institution, and a one-week leadership seminar in Asia. Over the course of the program, and with online guidance and mentorship, they develop a case study of ways to address a particular challenge at their home institution.
