Associate Director of Education, David Goldman, decides to pursue other opportunities

Salzburg Global Seminar announces that David Goldman, Associate Director of Education, has decided to leave the organization to pursue other opportunities effective August 29, 2014. David started at Salzburg Global as a Program Intern in 2001. He returned full time a year later and has served in many capacities since then – first as a Program Associate, then as Coordinator of the International Study Program on Global Citizenship (recently renamed Global Citizenship Program or GCP), and finally as Associate Director of Education. David has been an integral part of the organization – particularly the Global Citizenship Program and the related Mellon Fellow Community Initiative (MFCI).
Together with Jochen Fried, Director of Education, and Astrid Schröder, Program Director for the GCP, David co-created and developed these programs since 2004 and 2008 respectively. During this period he has established and maintained institutional partnerships with nearly 100 colleges and universities, worked with Foundations  and other third party funders to support these programs, helped facilitate strategic planning processes focused on institutional change for global citizenship at these partner institutions that education, and worked with over 3,000 students, faculty, administrators, staff. David developed and contributed subject matter expertise on global citizenship, Holocaust memory and education, higher education policy, and strategic institutional change.
In addition to his work on the GCP and MFCI, David has directed sessions on higher education policy around the world aimed at increasing access, completion, success, and relevance for underrepresented constituencies. He has implemented programs both in Salzburg and off-site at locations ranging from Athens, Greece to Elkins, West Virginia and has represented Salzburg Global at international conferences such as the European Access Network’s World Congress on Access to Post-Secondary Education.
David has been a dear friend and colleague to many involved with the organization. His contributions over the years are appreciated and he will be missed. Salzburg Global wishes him all the best for the next phase of his career and future endeavors.
