Biographical / Historical

The United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia was established in the 1920s to support and coordinate the activities of Protestant colleges and universities in China. Following the Communist takeover of China, the United Board focused its efforts on educational work in other Asian nations. In recent years it has re-focused some of its activities on China. See the annual reports of the United Board for a detailed description of program activities during the period covered by this collection.
