Abstract: 
The United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia has worked for nearly a century to support the development of whole person education and Christian values in colleges and universities throughout Asia. Working across borders and cultures, the organisation has both reflected its times and striven to transcend them by seeking common purpose with educators from vastly different backgrounds. 
 
In her talk, Dr Chapman will focus on several pivotal moments in the United Board’s history that reveal both the challenges and rewards of international educational exchange.
