June 12, 2024

From being an adjunct professor to an author, Christine Galib does it all following her successes in the EdD program. Throughout her time at Drexel, Galib flourished in learning leadership and organizational skills that she has used to create a thriving career. Thanking her professors and the educational community at Drexel, Galib says it felt as though her time in the School of Education was created just for her.

Where are you employed?
I am an early-stage startup advisor, adjunct professor, and author.  I have published a collection of parables, as well as the first two books in my Holy-Grail quest trilogy, starring a young female protagonist.  My books are available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

What would you say are some of your favorite things in your current occupation?
I love working with startups, entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors because we are building the future and applying our talents, skills, and experiences to solving the biggest challenges with the best people! No day is the same and every day, I get to make good magic with great people! :)

What made you choose Drexel?
The professors, the community, and the caliber of education and experiences I could pursue at Drexel! The EdD program felt like it was designed for me. :)

How did the coursework you experienced at Drexel impact where you are now?
My coursework taught me the leadership skills I needed to design and direct sustainable, goal-aligned change in communities and ecosystems, as well as with teams, organizations, and motivated and brilliant people.

How were the professors/mentors that you worked with during your time in the School of Education significant in aiding your transition from college to your career?
I have had the pleasure of supporting Dr. Pittman in the Global Teach Connection Summit, held annually in November (more info here: ). This is an excellent summit that unites educators around the world to discuss key trends and learn from each other. Dr. Pittman's leadership of this summit is incredible, as well as her ability to unite varying coalitions to accomplish a shared goal!

What advice do you have for others who are just starting their educational journey in your field?
Listen to what is said, and more importantly to what is not said. Learn how to show others how to discover and apply their superpowers to creating good magic and adding value.
