Leadership Development for Higher Education

Leadership Development programs focus on relatively senior staff at colleges and universities in the United Board’s network. Our programs are designed to help these leaders navigate the dynamic economic, social, cultural, physical, and regulatory environments shaping higher education in Asia. These programs help them articulate a long-range vision for their respective institutions, inspire diverse people to move toward shared goals, secure adequate resources to implement them, and track the trends that shape the needs for human resource development in their economies and broader societies. We also support young leaders to promote values and methodologies that nurture students as whole persons. Through our grantmaking, we provide support for projects that build leadership capacity for whole person education.

Ten United Board Fellows have gone on to become president or principal of their home institutions.
