Research and Publications

GLAC promotes cutting edge research to advance the field of global leadership in multiple ways. GLAC is a repository for research and teaching materials related to global leadership. From this web page, scholars and future global leaders can access a wide range of online books and publications as well as postings regarding research awards and events.

One valuable resource on this site is the Global Leadership Bibliography [pdf], a master reading list of more than 150 articles and books by researchers and professionals from around the globe. Note that many of these publications are authored by SJSU educators and researchers. This list is updated each summer. If you have published something that we missed, please let us know at

Research Support and Recognition

As a vibrant hub for scholarly research and educational excellence, GLAC promotes and supports the field of global leadership in various ways.

The GLAC Scholar-in-Residence program hosts professors from other universities who spend their research sabbaticals or short-term periods working with GLAC faculty and GLAC staff.

Professors affiliated with other universities and organizations may also participate in GLAC research projects and programs as a designated GLAC Research Fellow.

Sharing research findings with peers and bestowing recognition for outstanding work and achievement in the field also serve to rapidly proliferate and advance research conclusions.

Each year since 2009, GLAC helps to advance the field by acknowledging the Best Global Leadership Article or Best Global Leadership Dissertation, authored by professors and scholars of global leadership. The awards committee reviews dozens of entries from emerging and established scholars, all vying for recognition from their peers.

Global Leadership Symposia

Over the past decade, SJSU has been represented at numerous symposia focused on global leadership. GLAC educators joined other experts in global leadership for intensive workshops and seminars focused on promoting and demonstrating the basic tenets of the GLAC program mission.
