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 three-week summer institute at a leading higher education institution; a semester-long placement in an Asian college or university; 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; and
  • developments in their academic fields by auditing classes, meeting with their mentors and colleagues, and teaching occasional classes.

Meet the 2019-2020 Fellows!

The application process for the 2019-2020 United Board Fellows Program is now closed.

Please note: Following the 2019-2020 Fellows’ program year, the United Board Fellows Program will have a one-year hiatus. During this period, United Board staff will assess the program’s long-term impact and consider ways to better serve the leadership development needs of our network institutions. This means that we will not be accepting applications for the 2020-2021 program year; we anticipate resuming the application process for the 2021-2022 program year.
