Chris R. Glass, PhD

Director Executive Ed.D. in Higher Education, Boston College and affiliated faculty, Center for International Higher Education (CIHE)

I am a Professor of the Practice in the Department of Educational Leadership and Higher Education at Boston College where I lead the Executive Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Higher Education program and serve as an affiliated faculty member in the Center for International Higher Education (CIHE).

My research and writing focus on global student mobility, virtual mobility and exchange, as well as equity, inclusion, and sustainability in international higher education. You can see recent publications on my BC faculty webpage and a full list of my publications on GoogleScholar or by downloading my CV.

I have a deep commitment to the transformative power of international education, developed through years of leading study abroad programs and strengthened by personal connections with international students and scholars around the world.
