He received a Ph.D. in International Development Education from Stanford University, where he became the founding director of the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) and a founding member of the Bay Area Global Education Program. Later he developed the Consortium for Teaching Asia and the Pacific in the Schools (CTAPS) at the East-West Center. He moved to Hong Kong in 1995 where he served as Dean of the Faculty of Languages, Arts, and Sciences, and co-Director of the Centre for Citizenship Education at the Education University of Hong Kong. His most recent publication is the chapter “Global Education” in the Handbook of Social Studies Research. In 2013 Dr. Grossman received the Distinguished Global Scholar Award from the International Assembly of the NCSS, and the Arthur King, Jr. Curriculum Innovation Award for outstanding contribution to curriculum research and development in the Asia and Pacific region from the Pacific Circle Consortium.

His featured presentation at International Assembly will celebrate IA’s Distinguished Global Scholar Program by introducing a new book, The Global Education Movement: Narratives of Distinguished Global Scholar, which captures the biographical narratives of the scholars who have been awardees in this program.
