Tis report marks a turning point or the United Board. Eight years ago, we opened a Hong Kongoce in order to ully engage in challenges acing higher education in Asia. Tis base enabled usto expand our proessional contacts and develop strong working relationships with universitiesand colleges across the region. It deepened our understanding o key issues conronting Asianeducators and helped us identiy countries and regions that particularly need support. As aresult, the United Board’s Asia-wide network is stronger and more vital than ever.Our programs have been initiated and located in Asia, but going orward, they will be
bypartner institutions in Asia in cooperation with the United Board. Programs will be pan-Asian,based at institutions in the region and driven by on-site experts. A brie introduction to ourthree new program initiatives — Environment, Inter-Religious Understanding and Peace-Building, and Local Knowledge — can be ound on the next page.We could not have reached this new phase without the relationships developed through oursignature programs, such as the United Board Fellows, Asian University Leaders, Regional FacultyScholars and others eatured in this report. Tese programs will continue to be a vital part o our work. We invite you to read comments rom alumni, which vividly illustrate the tangible,lasting impacts o their experiences with the United Board.Te highlights o two busy program years, described in these pages, show how the United Boardand its partners continue to be important voices in Asia or the value o combining academic,moral and ethical training. We are grateul or your continuing support o these eorts. Ching-mai Wu Patricia StranahanChair, Board o rustees President
