Mission and Identity

The United Board is committed to education that develops the whole person – intellectually, spiritually, and ethically. The United Board draws strength from Christian identity and values and collaboration with Asian colleges and universities.

Since its founding, the United Board has promoted sharing of resources across borders and among institutions. That practice began in Asia more than 90 years ago, when the governing boards of Christian colleges in China realized they would gain strength by sharing responsibility for recruiting faculty, procuring supplies, and raising funds. In those days, the college administrators looked to North America for intellectual resources.
