United Board Fellows Program

The United Board Fellows Program is designed to answer the needs of leadership development for mid-career faculty and administrators from Asian colleges and universities. Through this program, the United Board develops dynamic leaders who will advance whole person education within their home institutions.

This one-year experience features an intensive summer institute at a leading higher education institution; a short-term placement in an Asian college or university or a two-week study trip in another Asian country or region (excluding Australia or New Zealand); online networking and mentoring; and a summative reflective seminar in an Asian city. Fellows have opportunities to learn about:

  • styles of leadership, organizational structure, and educational management;
  • alternative pedagogical styles to enrich their own teaching;
  • developments in their academic fields; and
  • self-care, ethics, and spiritual nurturance.
