About Us

The United Board endeavors to respond to the diverse challenges and opportunities facing our colleagues in higher education in Asia, especially where the needs are great. We share their interests in developing institutions that offer multidisciplinary education and that nurture a spirit of compassion, equity, reconciliation, social responsibility, and mutual respect among religious and cultural traditions.


Our approach is ecumenical and inclusive: our primary involvement is with Christian institutions, but we also reach out to other colleges and universities that share our commitment to whole person education. Solidarity with educators at these institutions forms the foundation of our work. Through their insights we identify needs and through their creative responses we find ways to address them collaboratively.


Our programs and grants support institutions to improve the quality of education. We sponsor professional training for faculty, administrators, and trustees, and foster linkages and networks among Asian institutions of higher education. Our current focus is on five program areas: leadership development for higher education; faculty development for enhanced teaching, learning, and research; campus-community partnerships; culture and religion in Asia; and special initiatives.


We fund our programs by seeking contributions from individuals, foundations, and alumni associations of Asian institutions to supplement the income from our endowment.
